WELCOME

Message from the President

As announced in the June newsletter, we invite you to take the membership engagement survey. The ARMA Edmonton Board will be using the survey data to identify and drive the future direction of the ARMA Edmonton Chapter.

We want to identify the most effective way to make your ARMA Edmonton membership a valuable part of your professional life. These actions are being taken out of a concern for the short-term and long-term sustainability of ARMA Edmonton as an entity. For the past two years, the Edmonton Chapter has not received a single membership nomination to sit on the Board. Additionally, we’ve seen a decline in attendance at our events, with the majority of attendees consisting of ARMA Calgary Chapter members. As we make a plan to move forward, we are interested in the opinions of our membership to determine if our members support the Chapter model within our province, or would it make sense to merge with the Calgary Chapter and form a Chapter to serve all Albertans?

We look forward to hearing from you.

Emily Speight
President – ARMA Edmonton

As our members live, meet, and work in the province of Alberta we acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Six Regions of the Métis Nation of Alberta within the historical Northwest Metis Homeland.

We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting. 


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.
