    Hello First Canadian Chapter members

    I would just like to thank all the members, and the few non-members who came out for the first breakfast seminar of 2018. Also a big thank you to Daniel Martin of Microsoft who presented on MS Teams, and a new way of collaborating. Thanks to Wendy Tryhorn of Lexmark, who hosted our meeting in their swanky downtown core meeting space.

    The audience were fantastic this morning, and we had some great discussion about how MS Teams fits in, or does not, with the way organizations manager their information; how Teams works with Planner, with existing SharePoint sites, and how Office365 Groups work as the under pinning layer.

    The audience members requested a follow up session on how Microsoft's "protective layer" works - so expect a future session covering Information Rights Management (IRM), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Records Management functionality - you asked, so we will organize it !

    Daniel from Microsoft works his demo magic !

    Questions, so many questions......   :-)

    Thanks again to all involved !

    Good morning,


    I would like to know if there are any chapter meetings/gatherings in Ottawa?  As a federal employee it is very difficult to obtain approval to travel for membership participation, and I would like to meet up with and have an opportunity to discuss issues face to face with other AIIM members.


    I look forward to your response,

    I am based in Ottawa. I have been a member of the chapter for a few years now.  Is the chapter able to provide list of members in the Ottawa so that we can meet up and network?  Thanks in advance your help.
