Webinar: Electronic & Hard Copy Records: What to Keep, What to Destroy, What Holds Up in Court


Wednesday, October 9, 2013


Speaker:  Elizabeth Fast, JD, CPA, Spencer Fane Britt & Browne, LLP


About the Program

Various regulations and federal and state laws mandate a credit union’s retention of specific documents (both traditional paper documents and electronically-stored information) for a designated period of time. Unfortunately, these laws overlap and conflict, causing confusion. In the past, some institutions simply retained all records permanently “to be on the safe side.” That isn’t practical today, because retaining all records can actually harm the credit union. All credit unions must have a systematic document-retention and destruction policy that covers electronically-stored information and traditional paper documents. This webinar will address the legal requirements and practical considerations for both electronic and paper document retention and destruction.



  • What documents should be kept and for how long?
  • How should electronic records be handled?
  • How can an effective document retention policy help your credit union?
  • What are the pitfalls to watch for?
  • What special action must be taken when litigation is threatened against your credit union?


* Please Note:
Wisconsin State Charter Credit Unions must adhere to the record retention requirements in the Financial Managers Society Record Retention Manual. In additional to the above session material.
