Important Record Management News from State Archives

The New York State Archives has changed how it delivers advisory services to New York State local governments. For the past thirty years the Archives has delivered these services using a regional model; each region served by a Regional Advisory Officer or RAO.

As of January 1, 2022, advisory services are delivered by government type. Each government type is assigned a Records Advisory Officer (RAO).

One advantage of the new model, it will allow RAOs to develop a deeper understanding of each government type and the records it produces, enabling each RAO to provide even better service than they did before. Here is our list of RAOs and the government types they cover:
