Summaries of previous CHARM meetings

Meeting of 11th April 2019
London: Amnesty International (International Secretariat)
We were given an update from The National Archives on their Charity Records project. Many CHARM members have contributed to this project, and we look forward to seeing how it          develops.
Attendees also discussed the issues surrounding the management of digital files, including records on shared drives and in cloud storage.

Meeting of 31st January 2019
Location: Barnardo’s
We were joined by a Preservica representative to discuss the consortium model of their digital preservation solution. We also heard about the upcoming event on at the British Academy   “Voluntary Organisation’s Records: why do they matter?” 6th March 2019.
We finished off the meeting with a brisk walk around the grounds of Barnardo’s and learnt a bit about the history of the founder and the Barkingside homes.
