How Are We Doing?

Wednesday, November 29, 2023 12:55 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

As we approach the end of the calendar year - and the middle of the chapter year - it's a good time to look in the rearview mirror, assess where we are, and consider where we should go next. This fall we've had several successful events, including Shred Day, learning sessions, and our chapter meetings.

Webinar: Judges and Generative AI 

We recently hosted presenter Ronald Hedges for a one hour webinar that provided an overview of GAI from the viewpoint of attorneys and judges who must address its use and alleged misuse. View the webinar page for more information about the presenter as well as supplemental materials provided to attendees. You can also find a recording on

e-Records Recaps

Several chapter members attended the annual e-Records conference hosted by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and Department of Information Resources. Recaps of all the sessions, including the keynote by our own chapter's Azure Brown, will be published on The Texas Record blog.

Shred Day Shout Out

From Kimberly DeCola, Shred Day Chair, Immediate Past-President

Fall Shred Day 2023 is a wrap and a successful one, at that. We processed over 220 cars! Despite the icky weather in the morning, we had a steady stream of lovely people come through, but none of it would have been possible without the help of several amazing people. I’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to our stupendous volunteers: Ricka Zobel, Bonnie Zuber, Laura Tenberg, Tina Silguero, Jen Greer, Kim Reddin, Betty Knipp, Annie Rodriguez, Jocelene Ortiz and Julie Johnson. There is also no way we could have managed the event without the awesome crew from Balcones: Danny, Chris, Jose, David, Eleazar, and Josh.

We raised $1520.21 in donations, but more importantly, we are proud to have helped the community shred nearly 15,000 lbs of paper records. Mark your calendars for April 2024 when we will have Spring Shred Day 2024!

Member Survey

To help drive us forward into years ahead, we're seeking feedback from members to find out what is benefitting us and what may not be.

We'd also like to know which sounds better: bowling or arcade?
