The formation meeting for Secretaries and Archivists of the Provinces and Districts of Latin America took place in Curitiba, Brasil, from 13 to 18 May. The principal objective of the meeting was to train the Provincial Secretaries and Archivists in the use and implementation in their Provinces of the programmes Kosmos and Archivum.

Kosmosis an application for managing the data on the persons and works of the Marist Institute. Archivum is a document management system for the integrated administration of the archives of the Institute.

The two tools were conceived and set in motion by teams made up of persons attached to the Marist institution, in order to optimise the human and technological resources of the Institute.

This meeting helped facilitate working in group and network among the different Provinces of Latin America, in all the common procedures capable of being standardised under the same work system, such as the management of data and documents.

The meeting took place in an atmosphere of fraternity, allowing close acquaintanceship between persons working in the very different situations of the various Provinces.  It was a strong experience of personal growth. All the participants took back with them much more than the hours of training in Archivum and Kosmos.
