Records Management Leads are important assets to King County and are key members of the county's Records Management Network. They are liaisons between their workgroup and the King County Records Management Program. They also have access to additional features within Content Manager that support their agency's records management efforts.

To help support Records Management Leads, the Records Management Program develops various resources to help them do their job. These resources are sent out by email and are also available on this page. Records Management Leads are also encouraged to view all trainings and resources available for all users on the Records Management website.

For more information about what a Records Management Lead does, please review the role description. You can review names of all current Records Management Leads on our website.
