WELCOME

Message from the Board of Directors

ARMA YEG’s AGM was scheduled for September 29th. 10% of our membership RSVP’d and showed up, asked good questions, and listened to the problems we are likely to encounter in the coming year.  

Unfortunately, this meeting was not a success.  

We did not make quorum and as a result, we were not able to approve decisions to shape work for the coming year.  

In August we released a Member Engagement survey that outlined ideas to reimagine our value offer and move ARMA YEG forward. This survey received a 15% response rate. Those folks deserve a lot of credit, they too see a need for change and a path forward. 80% of them even volunteered to help out.  

And yet, this still isn’t enough.  

For ARMA YEG to move forward in any format, we need at least 20 people at our rescheduled AGM on November 4th. This will allow us to accomplish one of these things: 

a) Stay the course 

b) Evolve and become competitive to give your membership fees value.  

The other alternative, if we do not make quorum, is that we cease to exist and ARMA YEG’s significant capital reserve is absorbed by ARMA Canada.  

The ask is that you RSVP to the Eventbrite for this meeting as soon as possible so we can have productive conversations and move forward. I realize this conversation can generate a lot of big emotions and concerns. If you want to chat about these before the meeting do not hesitate to reach out at president@armaedmonton.org – we will be happy to set up a Zoom call, phone call, or email you back. You only need to reach out.  

Thank you for taking the time to listen, see you on November 4th.

Kind Regards,

The ARMA Edmonton Chapter Board of Directors

ABOUT US

About the Edmonton Chapter

A formal records management program was legislated in Alberta during the early 1970s. This resulted in high demand for records management training and education. Some key individuals working for the provincial government at the time collaborated to establish a chapter in the Edmonton area. On October 12, 1975, the ARMA Edmonton Chapter was chartered. Today the chapter provides training, education, and networking opportunities to members.
