President's Message - Winter 2017

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

The Board has a few announcements we'd like to share:

ARMA Updates: ARMA has launched a new interactive online series called iMasters. Starting in November, ARMA started bringing the experts in RIM and IG to you every other month, wherever you are. The first session focused on "Three Keys to Managing Change for RIM Programs." The next one will be on January 18, 2017, "Innovative Ways to Make IG Happen." To learn more go to (Professional members of ARMA can tune it to all of the iMasters sessions for free.)

Save the Date - Thursday April 27, 2017: The Bellevue Eastside, Greater Seattle, and Puget Sound Chapters are coordinating to schedule a tri-chapter conference next spring. More details will be announced after the first of the year!

BEC Meeting Schedule: This year the Chapter is mixing it up a bit and alternating meeting dates between Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Our kickoff meeting was held on September 14 with Meaghan Kahlo talking about managing digital photos. For those not able to attend, Meaghan's presentation and contact information are now up on the BEC website. On November 9, Tina Torres presented on "Legacy Data Governance - How to Decommission Outdated Systems."

The next Chapter meeting will be on Wednesday, January 11, 2017. Denise Simons will be presenting on "Deploying Data to the Cloud." As always, you can find the latest information on our Chapter website:

See you at the next meeting!
