Welcome to Our 2015-16 Chapter Year!

2015 – 2016 Chapter Year

Greater Kansas City Chapter of ARMA International COMMUNICATION re: May 2016 Meeting

Our board hopes you are enjoying the programs and ARMA International Education Sessions each month. As a not-for-profit association, our objective is to provide our members with continuing education and networking opportunities.

However, due to an unforeseen situation we will not be having a May meeting; nevertheless we would like for the Chapter to take this time to take advantage of ARMA International’s online resources via May’s Educational Session.

The April session is available now until April 30th on www.arma.org > My ARMA > Login >My Profile tab > Chapter Memberships > click on the Education link.

Town Hall: The Future of RIM As We Know It – This session from the MER conference (Managing Electronic Records) involves the participants in an informative interactive exchange – between practitioners attending the session and prominent experts.

We are still seeking volunteers to fill these roles on the 2016-2017 board of directors:

  •       President-Elect
  •       Treasurer
  •       Director of Arrangements
  •       Director of Membership
  •       Chapter Secretary


These roles are vital to running a successful chapter and the time it takes to participate can be as much or little as you desire and all we ask is that you try to make your participation a priority when necessary.  The past board members will help get you acclimated to your position and we continually assist and support each other as needed throughout the year.  Reach out to me or any of our board members with questions. Our contact information is on our website, www.gkcarma.org. Thank you for your consideration.

So on May 11th, please set aside an hour and take in the ARMA International Education Session of the Month, in place of our regularly scheduled luncheon. Watch your inbox, after the first of the month for access to May’s edition.

I hope to see you at the April 13th meeting at the Grand Street Café on the Plaza as well as the June GKC ARMA meeting (tentatively slated for June 8th  4:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Location to be determined) to swear in the new board and to acknowledge the success of all our members during this year-end celebration.

Thank you all for your interest and participation.

Dana Russell

GKC ARMA President 2015-2016
