The Great Lakes Region and Midwest Rocky Mountain Region will be joining forces again this year to hold our Region Leadership Conference (RLC). However, we have also added the Southeast Region to the mix – the more the merrier!
We are very close to having the agenda finalized and sponsorship information ready to share with you all.
As more information becomes available, we’ll be sure to get it out to you to share with your Chapters. Remember, this will be a FREE (yes, FREE) event so we can continue to educate our Chapter Leaders on everything ARMA.
Hi all! Please see below for a very unique and innovative combined virtual programming opportunity developed by a group of 12 Great Lakes chapters. Pardon the short notice, but the first virtual event begins on Tuesday, April 13. This looks pretty fantastic and we hope many of you will be able to join us!

A BIG THANK YOU TO RICHARD GURESKI, GREATER MILWAUKEE CHAPTER, FOR HIS EFFORTS TO DEVELOP THESE ANNOUNCEMENTS AND CREATE COLLABOARTIVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR CHAPTERS!
Greetings Fellow ARMA Chapter Board Members
I hope this message finds everyone well. I’m writing to share programming announcements, educational opportunities and other information that you should feel free to share with your chapter. I’ll do these messages as often as I can to ensure we’re sharing information with each other. Some chapters may not be in a position to provide content during these Covid times so, let’s help each other out by sharing.
Of special note this month are two opportunities to collaborate between chapters including the ARMA Passport Announcement and the Spring Seminar-mania announcement.
As always, feel free to write me with any items you’d like to share with the group in the future and I’ll gladly pass them along. Remember that we’re all in this togetherJ
