As I mentioned in my previous letter to you, the board of directors and HQ staff have been working on making strategic changes, largely based on your feedback. In that letter I told you that our first goal would be to better define who we are and address some existing confusion in the market place.
I am pleased today to announce that the ARMA International board of directors has approved a change to our formal vision, core purpose, and mission statement on behalf of the international association.
ARMA International is a leader in information governance because we are the authority on records and information management (RIM). RIM is broadly recognized as the foundation of information governance.
With this shift, we affirm our long-held commitment to the aims and outcomes of the records and information management profession and establish our goal to be a strategic thought leader in information governance.
Our core purpose:
To promote principles and practices that 1) result in organizations understanding that their success relies on the effective management and governance of information and 2) create career and professional development opportunities in RIM and information governance.
Our mission statement:
To provide information professionals the resources, tools, and training they need to effectively manage records and information within an established information governance framework.
I speak on behalf of ARMA headquarters staff in saying that these newly approved statements reflect our focus on helping you better manage information as the strategic asset it is so that you and your organizations can meet with greater success.
ARMA International, 11880 College Blvd., Suite 450, Overland Park, KS, 66210, USA
