Welcome to the ARMA Calgary Chapter, serving information management professionals in Southern
Alberta. On behalf of the ARMA Calgary Chapter Board, I would like to acknowledge these
traditional lands on which we live and work, those of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai,
Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Stoney Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who
make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
I began my full-time career in records management in 2018, a relatively short time ago, after
graduating with a Master of Information where I focused almost exclusively on library science. At this
time, I felt that my knowledge of records was limited, and my experience was predominantly focused
within the arts, so I was wary of diving head-first into this field. However, over the past three years I
have found immeasurable opportunities and support from my membership and involvement with
ARMA, and by working with chapter members from across North America. I have since gained
knowledge and confidence to provide quality service in my professional role as a Records Analyst
and as a member of this larger community, with countless learning opportunities to improve and
further my professional development. I’m telling you this because regardless of how long you have
been in this profession and regardless of your background or experience, your local chapter of
ARMA is here to support your career goals by connecting you to resources, people, and
opportunities across this great network.
This year is one of unprecedented challenges, and of which we may continue to feel the impact for
years to come. ARMA Calgary’s goal is to remove barriers by providing engaging and impactful
programming at little to no cost to our members and non-members alike. I welcome your feedback,
questions, comments, and concerns as we continue on this path of virtual connection. So let’s shake
things up, continue to learn and grow together as a community of practice, and strive for inclusivity in
all that we do.
Make sure to follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter (@ARMACalgary) to get the latest
information about our programs and other happenings across ARMA Canada and ARMA
I look forward to connecting with all of you in the near future.
