Aloha from the GLA Chapter!

We are pleased to announce that our annual Holiday Party and Toy Drive will be held on the Tiki Mermaid! Start celebrating the holidays with your friends and colleagues while cruising around Marina del Rey!

The Tiki Mermaid is a unique cruise boat that is more like a tropical nightclub! It has everything, including a full bar, dance floor, and lounge!


As always, we will be hosting a toy drive! We will gladly accept unwrapped toys for boys and girls, for infants all the way to teenagers! Some of the teenagers are hard at work completing school, so you can also bring gift cards that they can use to buy needed supplies.

Every person that brings one or more gifts will receive a $5 off coupon for any GLA monthly meeting between January and June of 2018 (one coupon per person). So please bring a gift to help make a child’s holiday special!


Aaron Ronquillo (currently with Blackberry, formerly with Box), will hold a discussion on modern Enterprise File Sync & Share (FSS) technologies. FSS has mushroomed over the past few years and entered our enterprises through paths both approved and not. Their ease of use and reasonable cost have brought many users to the new technologies. We'll review the current market players and their business strategies. 

These technologies are affecting how we, as Records and Information Administrators, struggle to maintain compliance. Some related technologies will also be considered, such as records management, data loss prevention, digital rights management, and how these systems can be leveraged to enforce policy. 


Worried your significant other or colleagues might be jealous of your tropical holiday cruise? They can register too!

Please register as soon as possible so we can provide an accurate headcount to the venue.


Our holiday cruise includes a cocktail when you board, one free drink ticket, and Polynesian-inspired cuisine. Unlimited non-alcoholic beverages will be provided, and a no-host cash bar will be available.


The cruise will be a 3-hour tour from 6pm to 9pm. Please try to arrive 30 minutes prior to the departing time. 2-hour parking validation is provided, after that the cost is $3/hour (you will probably end up paying approximately $6). Please note that the parking booth only accepts cash. The Tiki Mermaid is located in Fisherman’s Village in Marina del Rey. The address and map can be found here:
