Rick's Leadership Conference Experience!

Posted: August 18, 2015

From Rick Sloan, ARMA Hawaii Chapter Vice President:

I had the pleasure of attending ARMA International’s Great Northwest and Pacific Regions Leadership Conference July 23-25 in Portland, Oregon. My favorite part of the conference was meeting other chapters' leaders and getting ideas from them learning what has and has not worked for their chapters. The Greater Los Angeles and Alaska chapters are planning on holding a joint teleconference member meeting sometime this term and we discussed the possibility of having the Hawaii chapter participate as well.

ARMA International promises to be more "transparent" with its members under the direction of Robert Baird, ARMA's new CEO. Another major goal of ARMA International is to focus on getting millennials interested in records management and information governance so that there will be a rosy future for both the industry and ARMA itself. As an aside, Bob informed the attendees that he had lived for four years in Hawaii while in the military and considers those years to be his favorite.

It was also stressed at the conference that Records Information Management (“RIM”) has and will always remain the foundation of ARMA International. Information Governance will also play a role but not all members of ARMA will necessarily be active participants in Information Governance.

ARMA International is willing to consider and make necessary changes in order to improve the organization in both the short- and long-term. I hope that it will continue to hold these leadership conferences so that its new leaders will be able to learn from other chapters' leaders!

Lastly, I am looking forward to the next 12-months as your Vice President. I desire to and plan on learning as much about records management in order to be more knowledgeable myself but also in order to be able to contribute more the chapter as your Vice President.
