Join us in celebrating April as “Records and Information Management Month (RIMM)! This internationally recognized month spotlights and promotes the records and information management profession and the importance and value of organizing and managing records to the organization.
Follow the news link, “Archives News” on the Washington State Archives page. Watch for the title “April is Records and Information Management Month.” There is a link in the news article for a copy of the Proclamation issued by Governor Inslee declaring April to be RIMM for the State of Washington. This RIMM proclamation is in recognition of the critical need for agencies to organize and manage public records and also recognizes of the role and efforts made by the hardworking and diligent records professionals who endeavor to preserve, protect and manage our public records.
As those of you who deal with records maintenance get hit by the spring cleaning bug, keep in mind that there is a new “2015 DRAFT” version of the state’s general records retention schedule here.
