The 21st Century Retention Schedule- ARMA Greater Cincinnati Chapter

December 13, 2016- Greater Cincinnati Chapter Meeting

The times they are a’changin’ and with them, retention schedules and everything about them are changing.  A retention schedule that would have been industry standard 15 or 20 years ago may well be un-implementable in today’s information environment.  The record system it was designed for doesn’t exist anymore, and the technology it depended upon for implementation is rapidly becoming obsolete.  Today’s sprawling IT systems and big data environments require a completely different approach, from initial risk assessment and risk management analysis to development of the schedule itself through implementation.

This session will examine this new environment and what you need to do to create a retention schedule that’s responsive to this new environment.  Attendees will learn about:

– Key differences between a traditional retention schedule and one responsive to new realities
– New issues such as privacy and data loss prevention that create additional issues
– The new risk management calculus that necessarily must be taken into account

November Chapter Meeting: 11/29/16 at Brixx Ice Company

Program: In recent months, with dwindling membership and changes from ARMA   International, we are at a crossroads with the chapter. There have been many chapters within the county that have merged with larger chapters within their states, and while we’re at not ready to commit to do so, we have to keep our options open if membership continues to decline. We want to hear from our members about how to proceed. How do we get/keep new members? Are there reasons you haven’t been coming to meetings in the past? What are your reasons for continuing to stay in the organization? Should we as a chapter open up our scholarship fund to help pay for member’s fees as more and more companies are not paying for education and professional organization memberships? NOW IS YOUR TIME TO SPEAK!

Date: Tuesday, November 29th, 2016
Time: Lunch and Discussion: 1:00-3:00 P.M.
