Chapter Message - Spring 2016
We had our meeting which featured a presentation on RIM and the Internet of Things by Sukumar Iyer of Brillient Corporation, one of our new members, at Clyde's of Tysons Corner. We had an enjoyable discussion on the transformation of the Internet, privacy, big data, and whether our future would be more like Wall-E or the Terminator!
Our final meeting of the 2015-2016 season will happen in June. We are pleased and excited to welcome Mark Santangelo, Chief Librarian and Archivist, National Library for the Study of George Washington, who will speak on "American History in Modern Times - Going from a Basement to an Archival Presidential Library." We will also swear in our new/returning officers, offer door prizes, and raffle off one paid registration to ARMA's conference and one paid registration for the chapter's 2017 seminar.
During the summer, we will hold planning meetings for our 2016-2017 season. If you have any suggestions for speakers or events, please contact our President (Mary Beth Weaver) or Education Director (Tim Shinkle).
A number of job openings for records managers in the area and further afield have been posted on our Jobs page this month. Please check them out!
We also wanted to mention that full-time 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.
