ARMA Live! 2017 is on!

Several members of the Puget Sound ARMA are attending the annual ARMA International conference in Orlando this week. The theme of this year’s conference is “Agents of Change”.

*Venue Change* Be a Superhero: Records, Technology and Risk – Oct. 11, Tacoma

** Please note the location for our October 11 meeting has been moved to downtown Tacoma**
Address and directions are available on the program details/registration page.

Compliance with the Public Records Act and managing the ever growing hoard of digital records can feel like a monumental task. However, it doesn’t have to be. To tackle it successfully you need to shift your entire organization’s thinking.

Join the Puget Sound Chapter of ARMA in Tacoma on October 11th, where Whitney Stevens will discuss current technology tools available to most agencies, the risks of ignoring the problem, and how you can provide a starting framework to build success in your team.

Can’t attend ARMA Conference this year? Anyone can take part in ARMA Flipped on Aug 29, 2017!

From ARMA International: If you cannot participate in ARMA Live! 2017 in Orlando, you can still take part in the ARMA Flipped sessions.

Attend the August 29 sessions or view them on-demand, and then use the handouts to facilitate a follow-up workshop with your ARMA chapter or your department to apply what you’ve learned. Invite a local expert to facilitate the face-to-face workshop, or lead it yourself!

These “flipped” sessions are four web seminars with live text chat, SMEs, and solution providers, occuring in a virtual exhibit hall. (Anyone with a full conference registration will be automatically registered for ARMA Flipped!)

Here’s a list of the August 29 sessions:

  • Setting Up Survival Tricks for Managing Shared Drives
  • Preparing for a Transparent Vital Records Project Plan for IG Professionals
  • Building an Offsite Record Request System in SharePoint – The Building Blocks
  • Originating the Role of Information Governance Officer
