We hope you will join us for our Annual Awards Dinner and Silent Auction! We will be swearing in the 2019-20 Board of Directors, and presenting awards to members who went above and beyond in their efforts to promote the Chapter and RIM industry! 

Plus, don't forget about the Silent Auction! Instead of money, use ARMA "Bucks" to bid on items! There are many ways you can earn Bucks, such as attending an ARMA event, renewing your membership, and earning the CRM or IGP certification. The instructions and form are downloadable here on the event listing page, and are attached to meeting email announcements.

Past auctions have included gift cards to stores like Macy's and Trader Joe's, bicycles, movie memorabilia, wine, and so much more! If you, your company, or one of your favorite vendors would like to donate an item for our silent auction, please let us know by filling out THIS FORM or emailing Christpher Johnson.

This year we will be hosting our dinner at Castaway restaurant in the beautiful hills overlooking Burbank. Your registration includes a three-course dinner, two drink tickets, and complimentary valet parking! Please let us know in advance if you require a vegetarian or vegan option for dinner.

Presenter & Topic

Julia Mewbourne, M.Ed., IGP

Julia has over 25 years of experience in sales, operations, facilities, records management, and information governance. Julia’s first RIM assignment was with Lyon & Lyon, LLP where she focused on document security procedures, lateral moves and off-site records management. After the firm’s dissolution, Julia worked with service providers and as a consultant to develop and implement strategic plans to reduce the risk and costs surrounding discovery preparedness, as well as increase efficiency and productivity.  As a past-President of the GLA Chapter of ARMA, Julia continues to use the ARMA Principles© as a guide when creating roadmaps for clients.  Julia has both a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies and a Mater’s Degree in Human Resource Development from Vanderbilt University. She is a certified Information Governance Professional and has a professional certificate as a paralegal.


The Accidental Information Governance Professional

When you talk with most Information Management professionals, it’s rare to hear them say they always wanted to be in “Information”. Records departments were where problem employees were hidden and the Records Manager was the manager by default. This session will discuss how to have a career in Information Governance by developing your personal brand; identifying the knowledge, skills, and abilities hiring managers look for on resumes; and lessons learned from a non-linear career journey.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the knowledge, skills, and abilities of an Information Governance Professional
  • Develop a personal branding strategy
  • Develop a career development action plan
