Hi fellow WIIMers! I'm Georgina Clelland, AIIM's VP for Events, Membership and Professional Development. I've been with AIIM now for over 14 years, proud to have represented AIIM in both the UK and the US. My passion is providing points for connections between people - initially through in person events, but now also online. I'd love to hear from you about any ideas you have around events, membership or training - what should we do more of, differently, or even where has AIIM helped you connect with people that made a difference to your career?I look forward to developing this group for Women, by Women. I'd love ideas for topics you'd like help with from this group.
My name is Michelle Nowlan, I have been in the IM profession for the Department of National Defence for 14 years. My career in IM started as a configuration manager for ADM(Materiel) for an aircraft upgrade project, and then as an lead information administrator for a division of 800 people. I moved from (MAT) to the ADM(Information Management) group and managed their disposition and retention system. There I became quite well versed in the policies and laws that surround the information in the government and its military. From there I joined the RecordKeeping Initiative, where in 5 years we managed to instill IM knowledge into the defence community and an understanding of what their responsibilities are towards information management.
Last year, I was nominated for the Government of Canada's CIO award, and then awarded an Assistant Deputy Minister award for the development of DND's Electronic Imaging Management Programme. This programme allows the department to create electronic versions of information holdings, and then destroy the source original. The way the programme was developed provides the department mechanisms that can be used in a court of law to prove that all the processes, ISOs, standards and acts were followed.
I now am the manager of the disposition system, the imaging system, our information architecture, and business relationships. I love the world of information, its power, the transformation from physical to digital, and working in the defence community has been the most rewarding time in my career.
I am married 29 years, we have two grown sons, a Maine Coon cat named Frodo, we are vintage trailer owners, I'm a Newfoundlander, and I love being in nature, with a glass of red wine of course.

My name is Sandra Schreier. For the last 17 years I have been working in some capacity or another in the Records & Information Governance function within my company. Unfortunately, due to other obligations, I will not be attending this year's AIIM Conference. One of the topics that I would like help with from this group surrounds management of retention schedules. For instance for companies with a global records retention schedule, how do you stay abreast of legal and regulatory changes that impact your schedule? If you receive notifications from a third party, does the third party maintain a tool that compiles and interprets information from a number of sources and condenses it into a report or notification relevant to your schedule, or is the information in a software solution that you access on your own? If you perform the research in-house, what is your frequency and time spent for the research and review of the citations and what software or research tools are you using to stay apprised of the changes?
I am very much looking forward to interacting with and learning from this community. Thank you for allowing me to join and participate.
With warmest regards-

I work for a fund raising department in a large medical organization. I am fairly new to my role as an information manager. Most of what I know is self-taught. I am looking forward to going to the conference in April and learning a lot. I was an AIIM member back in the late 80's. I worked for a distributor of Kodak microfilm and there related equipment. We also processed and stored the films for many businesses, such as banks, hospitals and sales organizations. Times have really changed in the information management business.Julie
