ARMA International and the St Louis ARMA Chapter

ARMA International members include records managers, information managers, assorted professionals, imaging specialists, archivists, hospital administrators, legal administrators, librarians, compliance professionals, and educators. ARMA and its local chapters are dedicated to helping individuals, organizations, and government agencies successfully meet the challenges of the increasingly complex Records and Information Management (RIM) field.

The St Louis ARMA Chapter, part of the Midwest Rocky Mountain Region, has over 80 members from diverse industry backgrounds. Our chapter’s goal is to promote and enhance the profession of Records and Information Management through educational programs, newsletters, technical networking, and other career advancement and enhancement opportunities. Anyone interested in our chapter is invited to attend one of our events.

Affiliating with a chapter provides you with a local outlet not only for education, but also for meeting people in your area faced with the same challenges and opportunities as you face in the profession. Local education and involvement have proven to be the most valuable benefit to many members.
