Greetings from your ARMA Southwestern Ontario Board!

As 2016 draws to a close, I wanted to reach out to our membership and wish you all the best in 2017.  Your ARMA SWO Board has been working hard to plan some exciting educational and networking opportunities for 2017.

One of the ideas we’ve been toying with is having smaller networking meetings in more of the locations where our membership reside.  Because our chapter covers a large geographic area, sometimes it is hard for members to travel to events.  If you are interested in having one of these events in your location, please let us know at  These could be as simple as a networking get together or more formal with a guest speaker.

This year, ARMA Canada is holding its conference in Toronto.  The dates are May 29-31 with an opening reception on the 28th.  Since we want to support ARMA Canada and ARMA Toronto, we will not be holding an Information Summit this spring.  We do, however, hope to bring one to you in the fall of 2017.  Stay tuned!

As always, we love to hear from our membership.  The board is made up of enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about supporting the network of records and information management professionals in Southwestern Ontario.  We love what we do, and we welcome your input and participation.  If you’re curious about becoming a board member, send us a note at and one of us will connect with you.

Have a happy and safe holiday season!

Anne Hepplewhite

President, ARMA Southwestern Ontario
