A records management program is responsible for the efficient and systematic control of the creation, receipt, maintenance, use and disposition of records, including the processes for capturing and maintaining evidence and information about an organization’s functions and transactions in the form of records.
The Presbyterian Historical Society provides the records management program for Presbyterian Church (U. S. A.) national offices, synods, presbyteries, and congregations and houses and services the permanently valuable records of the denomination. As a department of the Office of the General Assembly, the Society assists the Stated Clerk in fulfilling his recordkeeping responsibilities for all General Assembly entities.
