Hickman County Archives now has a Certified Archive Manager

Hickman County Archivist Austin Bullock was one of nine archivists from around Tennessee who were presented with certificates from Secretary of State Tre Hargett in recognition of their achievements in becoming Certified Archive Managers.
The individuals were presented the certificates during the 2009 Tennessee Archives Institute held at Fall Creek Falls October 21 – 23. This year marks the 10th year for the institute.
To reach the certified archives manager status, the completion of three years of instruction and training is required.
“The achievements by these nine individuals demonstrate their dedication to obtaining the training that is essential to the challenges of documenting and preserving documents and records that are of great importance and enduring value to our state and its citizens,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. The Tennessee Archives Institute is a two and one-half day series of workshops on the principles and practices of archival management and records preservation. The Institute provides participants with an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with other archivists and records keepers from around the state. The Institute is intended primarily for county and municipal archivists and records managers. Historians, genealogists, county officials and other individuals who work with historical records also participate.
To date, 133 individuals from 65 counties have attended the Institute, sponsored by the Tennessee State Library and Archives, a division of the Tennessee Department of State. A total of sixty four individuals have received certification.
