2017 ARMA Greater Columbus Spring Seminar- Information Governance Bootcamp

Please join us on May 18th at the Greater Columbus Chapter’s Spring Seminar- Information Governance Bootcamp led by Barclay T. Blair.

New and powerful technologies are changing the way we communicate, conduct business, and record our history. We are rapidly progressing beyond the paper to electronic record transition into a more visual, multi-media world of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube to reach our customers, colleagues, and communities. As a result, the Records and Information Management (RIM) profession is experiencing a major transformation from traditional records management to a broader paradigm of comprehensive governance of all organizational information and content.

Barclay T. Blair is an author, speaker, and internationally recognized authority on information governance. He is also Executive Director and founder of the Information Governance Initiative and President and founder of ViaLumina. He has led several high-profile consulting engagements at the world’s leading institutions to help them globally transform the way they manage information. Barclay is an award-winning author of Information Nation: Seven Keys to Information Management Compliance, Information Nation Warrior, and Privacy Nation.
