• May DC Info Pros Happy Hour—Theresa Resek from AIIM International Speaking

    Title: "How Do You Address the Elephant in the Room when You Can’t Call It an Elephant?" Join your fellow Information Professionals for a night of food, drink, sharing, learning, and fun. We'll be having an open discussion on making the case for information management. 5pm: Socialize over food and drinks (included with registration) 6pm: Our program begins including discussions about our Summer Social! 7pm: Continue to network and chat Our Speaker: This month, our speaker it Theresa Resek, the Director of Webinars & Content Marketing Services at AIIM International. Theresa is a brilliant person and has been immersed in user stories around managing content and information for quite some time. Just her anecdotes alone are worth the price of admission. Our Topic: Many executives and business leaders could care less about “Intelligent Information Management” or “ECM” or “Information Governance” or “Records Management” or “Intelligent Capture” or “Process Improvement” or or or… Yet those of us those who do understand these terms, and the impact they have on our organizations, are very concerned about getting these messages across to those who control the budgets and make the big decisions. How are you getting the point across to YOUR organization? How are you “selling” it, and are people “buying” it? How do you get YOUR initiatives off the ground? Join us as we have a brainstorming discussion about: - Overall strategies on how to talk about IIM (and all that it encompasses) - Language shifts for when you’re trying to educate and/or convince/persuade/influence: Exec / C-Suite, Team leaders, Colleagues, and the “other side” – ideas coming from Biz or ideas coming from IT - 20 KSAs needed to influence discussions on Intelligent Information Management (KSA = Knowledge, Skills, Abilities) We know that the answers to all these questions start with “it depends” – on the organizational structure, culture, personalities, audience, etc. Today we’ll share different ideas that might spark THE perfect solution for you and your situation. So let’s talk about how to talk about that elephant – and artfully avoid the steaming piles it does leave behind. This event, like all our speaker events, is eligible for 1 hour of educational credit for your PMP, CIP, or other continuing education certification requirements.

  • November Info Pros Happy Hour: Associations & the Information Profession

    Join your fellow Information Professionals for a night of food, drink, sharing, learning, and fun. 5pm: Socialize over food and drinks (included with registration) 6pm: Our program begins 7pm: Continue to network and chat about the program 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.

  • Info Pros Happy Hour: Transforming Your Business with Content Services

    All information and technology professionals are welcome!! Network and learn with us. Your $10 registration fee gets you great food and drinks at a low price (thanks to our sponsors). Plus you get to network with fellow Info Pros and hear a great presentation on one of today's most important topics. This session is pre-approved for 1 CIP maintenance credit hour. You can also get credit toward your PMP, CISSP, IGP, CRM, and other certifications! SESSION DESCRIPTION: This session will focus on Content Services and Digital Transformation. Laurence Hart from TeraThink will share his expert insights with us. There has been a lot of hype around content services the past few years. During that time frame, one Federal agency has been using the approach to transform how they serve constituents. Through the creation of business-specific services, they have been able to focus upon improving the user experience for constituents and staff. This, in-turn, is providing more efficient and reliable processes allowing the agency to meet their mission. Additionally, the separation of the user experience from the content engine is allowing for the expansion of features. Capabilities such as fraud analysis and automatic records classification leverage analytics to make decisions and recommendations. All of this without adversely the people who depend on the system every day to get their job done. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Laurence Hart is a Director at TeraThink (https://terathink.com/), with a focus on delivering information solutions that drive his clients’ success & builds their future. A proven leader in Content Management and Information Governance, Laurence has over two decades of experience solving the challenges organizations face as they implement and deploy information solutions. The author of Word of Pie (https://wordofpie.com/), Laurence is a respected voice in the industry, contributing to multiple publications and speaking regularly on how technology can address the challenges people face today and tomorrow.
