Update on TC ARMA Event Fees for 2021-2022

The Board decided that for the 2021-2022 Program Year starting in October all attendees will be able to register for the 1-hour webinar educational sessions for free.  All in-person meetings will have a fee charged to cover expenses. 

This is a great time for members to tell friends or co-workers about our chapter and to get the excitement going in our field.

October 12, 2021 Educational Event Registration is now open!

Microsoft and Microsoft 365 offer a suite of records, governance, tagging, retention, eDiscovery, and productivity tools for organizations of all size. These tools work safely and securely from the cloud but extend to on-premises files, data, and information, as well. Please consider joining us as Tom Moen helps us explore the newest features of Office 365 and Azure through high impact demonstrations related to records, compliance, and eDiscovery. Tom will delve into the most common RIM questions he receives from his 5000 clients but come prepared to ask a few of your own. Registration is on the link to the right of this screen.

November 9, 2021 Education Event Registration is also open!
