November Workshop – Two Parts – Managing your RM Program & Environmental Factors in Records Management

Thank you for joining us October 11 for our focus on the deliverables commonly found in a RIM program; What they are, How to create them, and Who to involve for success.

The October presentation, Records Management Program Deliverables,  can be downloaded here.  Did you miss September’s meeting introducing our plan for this year, ARMA Planning to Launch a Records Mgt Program? Those slides are available here.

For November we have been invited to MRIGlobal here in KC to learn more about their Environment Controls effort and tour their Records Center. The topic of the presentation will be “Environmental Factors in Records Management – Case and Practice at MRIGlobal Kansas City”. Sign up and get directions on our events page.

Opening the November meeting board member Joanna Hammerschmidt from WaterOne will share her experiences in project management for Records Programs. Now that you have the list of RM deliverables, let’s start talking about taking action and forming a project to create and execute on them!
