Crisis Management Team

A Crisis Management Team was created in 2009 as part of the English and Welsh strategy.  The team was created to represent all parts of the archive sector to organise agreed responses to business archives under threat and it exists to monitor and assist in steering records at risk into suitable homes.  

The Scottish Representative from the Implementation Group is Kiara King, Ballast Trust Archivist. For details about the other members of the team please see the Managing Business Archives website.
