We’ve had a fantastic season! We’ve learned how to sustain our education, reviewed the best practices for data forensics, and not only learned about the soft skilled side of Information Governance but went in-depth into the science of Information Governance. And all of this amidst COVID-19!

So it’s time to celebrate with a virtual happy hour on June 26. We’ll discuss the upcoming 2020-2021 season, network, chat, and play games!

COVID-19 & Cancellation of Spring Seminar

For the health and safety of our members and attendees and in light of the COVID-19 developments, our Spring Seminar for April 8th has been cancelled as well as all in-person meetings.

We still want to provide our members with opportunities to continue their education, so we’re going to replace the Spring Seminar with a virtual Chapter meeting. John Spencer will present his Emotional Intelligence and Soft Skills session. Please be on the look-out for the registration.

In the same manner, with the public libraries being closed the Study Group has been cancelled until further notice.

We understand these are uncertain times and everyone is dealing with the situation as best they can. We deeply care about the physical and emotional health of our members and if there is anything at all we can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact us. Stay healthy and safe.

Cancelled – April 8 Spring Seminar

The Soft Skilled Side of Information Governance

Most interactions require some level of soft skills. You might be negotiating to win a contract, presenting ideas to a colleague, networking for a new job, and so on. We use soft skills every day at work and developing these skills will contribute significantly to your success – and their absence may even make you less effective. With Information Governance’s enterprise-wide scope, RIM professionals must have finely-tuned soft skills to collaborate, develop relationships, and forge partnerships with each stakeholder. During this half-day seminar, John Spencer, RIM Service Delivery Manager for Ernst & Young LLP, will offer simple and practical guidance to help you develop and sustain the skills needed to continue pushing your career to the next level. You won’t want to miss the seminar that was voted ‘Best Presentation’ two years running at ARMA’s InfoCon!

Registration is only $50 which includes lunch, networking, and both sessions!

Sessions 1 and 2 will also be streamed online and a streaming-only registration is only $25!
