April is Records and Information Management (RIM) month. Every year, records management professionals around the world raise awareness about records and information management by promoting records related events. The RIM initiative was developed by ARMA International. Records managers interested in hosting their own RIM events can find promotional materials and ideas by visiting the ARMA International web site.
This year, the Utah State Archives and Records Service is sponsoring three events as part of RIM month. We hope you will join us for one or all of these events.

Records managers looking to promote in-office RIM events may consider scheduling an office-wide training day to update all office personnel on retention policies and GRAMA request procedures. Records managers might also speak with their directors to schedule an in-office records clean-up day where employees dress in jeans and everyone pitches in to address office backlog. For ideas on how to implement a records clean-up day, contact a records analyst. We would love to help you plan a clean-up day!
