Chapter Awards

The St Louis ARMA Chapter recognizes one RIM professional each year with the Chapter Member of the Year Award. The award is open to all St Louis Chapter members in good standing. The award recipient will be selected based on his or her contributions to the field of records and information management during the current program year. The recipient is recognized at the St Louis Chapter’s Annual Business Meeting in June and during ARMA International’s Awards Recognition at the Annual Conference & Expo in October each year.

Criteria include, but are not limited to: 
  • speaking or taking an active role in any RIM events, 
  • participatory roles in RIM-affiliated task forces and teams, 
  • promotion of RIM to audiences outside the Chapter, 
  • and participation in the St Louis ARMA Chapter.
