October 9 Member Meeting & Educational Session

In continuation of our focused panel discussions regarding Information Governance, October’s session will discuss Knowledge, Passion, & Curiosity.

For most folks, it has always been a real struggle to keep the fires of passion burning. So much of what takes place in our world can douse those flames – leaving a smoldering mess. What can we do to keep those flames burning brightly with passion, enthusiasm, and curiosity?  While also infusing them with the knowledge and ability needed to stay ahead of the game?

Bill Millican will be moderating this discussion between Robin Woolen, Kevin Joerling, and Bob Featherston.

September 12 Kick-Off Meeting

It can be challenging to explain Information Governance. Why is it called Information Governance? Who decided that what was once called File Management was changed to Records Management was changed to Information Management and now is called Information Governance? What is the difference? How does Information Governance help a company in ways that a Records Management program does not?

The Greater Kansas City ARMA Chapter is launching a series of monthly educational sessions focused on answering these questions. Each session will feature a panel of industry experts discussing that month’s featured topic as well as answering audience questions.

The kick-off session will be focused on the topic “The Future of Records Information Management & Governance – What Role Will You Play?”. The panel will discuss the types of skills and critical knowledge elements needed by today’s practitioners.
