The Center for National Document and Record Agency (CNDRA) has embarked on a two-day sensitization workshop, for line ministries, agencies and employees of the institutions. The workshop began Thursday at CNDRA’s head office on 12th Street in Sinkor.
About twenty (20) employees from the ministries of Land, Mines and Energy, Health and Social Welfare, the Liberia National Police (LNP), Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), amongst others are participating in the workshop.
CNDRA sponsors the workshop while some staffs from the Liberia Institute for Public Administration (LIPA) are facilitating.
In her opening remarks, CNDRA’s Managing Director Bloh Sayeh encouraged participants to utilize the knowledge being acquired positively for the good of the Archives Center and Liberia in general.
Madam Bloh said the training is part of her administration’s efforts in sensitizing and building the capacity of staff of line ministries and agencies in record keeping and documentation, which she said will boost and improve the country’s record system.
In a related development, three CNDRA’s employees, including Comptroller James Paye, have returned home following a 7-day intensive training of trainers (TOT) seminar at the Ghana National Record and Archive with sponsorship from the International Council for Archives.
Comptroller Paye spoke with the In Profile Daily and praised the International Council for Archives for affording his colleagues and him such an opportunity. He promised to share the knowledge and experience acquired from the training in helping to build the capacity of other employees at the entity.
The training brought together some 30 participants from Cameroon, The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia and other African countries.
Mr. Paye said the training was intended to build their capacity to adopt what he called tool kit for record management within their respective countries.
