SPEAKER:
We are excited to have Nick Inglis, former Information Coalition President, and ARMA's new Executive Director of Content & Programming joining us this month.

DESCRIPTION:
The life of the information professional is a challenging one. Changing regulations, technology, and business drivers makes the proper governing and management of information challenging. Local meetups, like this one, are great for exchanging ideas but where can we go to help improve professionally? Associations like AIIM, ARMA, and the Information Coalition have tried to serve overlapping sections of our broad community. They've provided training, certifications, books of knowledge (BOK), standards, and a larger sense of community through national, and international, events.

In October, the Information Coalition merged with ARMA, creating a new ARMA with a broader focus on the entire information community. What does this mean for the future of ARMA, the Information Coalition's capabilities including the InfoBOK, and for the average information professional looking to grow? Nick will share ARMA's vision and how things are going with the merger so far.
