Mecklenburg County Bar

Document Retention and Disposition Policy

 Approved by MCB Board of Directors 11/29/12 

The Mecklenburg County Bar's (MCB) policy is to maintain a Document Retention and Disposition Schedule (Schedule) in accordance with applicable federal and state laws and regulations which provide for the review, retention and destruction of documents received or created by the MCB in connection with the transaction of the MCB business. The Schedule shall cover all records and documents regardless of physical form or where the document is stored including paper and electronic files, and contains guidelines for how long certain documents should be kept and how records should be destroyed. The Schedule shall ensure compliance with federal and state law and regulations and contract requirements. The MCB intends this policy to avoid unintentional destruction of records and to facilitate MCB operations by promoting efficiency, freeing up valuable storage space and reducing offsite storage costs.
