Pivoting from Paper: Are we there yet?

Once again the Metropolitan Maryland and Northern Virginia Chapters of ARMA International are collaborating to present a full-day seminar packed with world-class speakers and cutting-edge topics.

This year's seminar theme is the transition from paper to digital. Business leaders and information scientists have anticipated for decades that digital technology would be the great enabler for a paperless society, but making the digital transition has been more complex than anticipated.  As information governance professionals champion adoption of digital strategies, technologies, and organizational behaviors -- challenges and opportunities arise from leaving paper behind.  Join us as we probe fascinating and emerging facets of this transition!

Our opening keynote speaker is Brett Tarr, Counsel: Litigation, E-Discovery, & Information Governance at Caesars Entertainment Corporation. Other speakers include:

  • Jason R. Baron, Esq., Of Counsel, Drinker Biddle
  • Mark Fisk, IBM Global Services Public Sector
  • Lisa Haralampus, National Archives and Records Administration
  • Matt Hebert, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Don Rosen, National Archives and Records Administration
  • Sue Trombley, Iron Mountain
  • Leslie Johnston, National Archives and Records Administration


Be sure to register early as space is limited to the first 100 people!
