Chapter Message - Fall 2016
Thanks to all who attended our October 19 meeting that featured Doug Hensch, of CrucialConversations, who talked about how top performers handle "crucial conversations" for successful results. We believe that the world of records and information management requires interaction with various stakeholders and that records managers could benefit from leadership development techniques. We raffled off copies of his bestseller "Crucial Conversations" and a copy of his recent book "Positively Resilient". This talk is part of our personal development series.
Over the summer, our Board has been busy planning our theme, and scheduling events. This year we are going to try some new things, including hosting some networking events, changing up the website and using more social media resources to market events. We also want to focus on our members this year to ensure we are meeting your needs.
Last year we examined how big data and technological tools have transformed our profession. This year, understanding that we cannot manage information alone, we are examining the role relationships play in this transformed landscape as well as the tools needed to work well with our stakholders to effect positive RIM changes.
Therefore, our season's theme is "Building Success Through Relationships"--working with a diverse number of stakeholders and colleagues to achieve our goals in a changing records management profession and workplace. Along with our regular meetings and annual seminar, we're also exploring quarterly gatherings on professional development, resume building, working with multiple generations in the workplace, RIM credentials, and other special topics we believe are important to our community. We're also planning to partner with local chapters and groups in the next year.

Finally, grad students have been able to register for our programs under our Member rates. In particular, if you are an archives/records management, library, or information science grad student, or know someone who is, our programs can be a great introduction to the issues and trends in our profession. We always welcome area grad students and newcomers to records management to participate in our chapter's activities.
