New Records Officers

A records officer is “the individual appointed by the chief administrative officer... to work with State Archives in the care, maintenance, scheduling, designation, classification, disposal, and preservation of records” (Utah Code § 63G-2-103).

If you are not the official records officer for your agency, you may still register and become certified.
