The ABA Joint Task Force on Filing Office Operations and Search Logic held a well attended panel discussion on Saturday afternoon, April 24, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM. primarily to consider the implementation, in 2010, by the Colorado Secretary of State as the first UCC filing office in the United States to eliminate paper forms and accept only electronic records. A panel comprised of Brian Gryth, Legislative & Legal Analyst, Business Division, Colorado Secretary of State, and John McCabe, Partner, Davis Graham & Stubbs, LLP, Denver office, discussed the reasons behind the decision to go all electronic and how they plan to address the obstacles, objections and other issues arising from this significant process change. Brian began with a PowerPoint presentation of the functionality of his office's proposed electronic filing system, its robust architecture, and its functionality in processing UCC filings. During the presentation, John and the members of the audience engaged Brian in a lively conversation. While questions remain, Brian made an excellent presentation and, in some cases, a defense of the approach of the Colorado Secretary of State. Many concerns were allayed because of the extensive beta testing proposed.
