March Chapter Workshop - Applying The Principles® to a RIM Scenario


As a Records and Information management professional, you know or at least have heard about The Principles® of information governance, known as the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles®. But how would you apply them in a given scenario?  This workshop will be a high-level overview of The Principles®.

A panel of three RIM professionals from the Austin Chapter will present The Principles® and apply them to a real-time records and information scenario. Attendees are invited to share their RIM issues and experience so the panel may apply The Principle ®to the issues.
ARMA International developed and published The Principles® to foster general awareness of information governance standards and principles and to assist organizations in developing information management systems that comply with them.
