Ask the Experts – Ask your Colleagues!

Bring your questions to our panel of records management professionals to get their opinions and advice. Records management’s standard answer is “it depends” so you are sure to hear differing opinions that will get you thinking and help you plan your course of action.

Do you have questions about improving your partnerships with IT or Legal? Using the ARMA Maturity Model to help move your program forward? What policies should you have in place? Should you take an ARMA Certificate or go for your CRM or IGP? Ask the panelists for their suggestions and also share your thoughts as an attendee.
