ARMA International is the world's leading membership organization serving the professionals who manage and govern information assets.
Originally, ARMA was the acronym for the Association of Records Managers and Administrators. Over the years, we have seen a broadening of the profession as records management has become a recognized and integral part of information governance, which is key to doing business. To reflect the changing environment and this "expansion" of the profession, the association's board of directors decided to discontinue using ARMA as an acronym and adopted "ARMA International" as a general descriptor of the association.
ARMA’s 100+ local chapters power our association, providing personal connections and learning opportunities for all who work toward effective records and information management. These self-governed communities help their members build personal networks as they enhance their professional and leadership skills.
The ARMA Fort Worth Chapter was established on October 12, 1981 and has been providing networking opportunities, continuing education, and a sense of community for information management professionals in the Fort Worth metro-area ever since. Monthly chapter meetings run from September - June. These meetings generally take the format of a lunch and learn.
At the 2015 ARMA Leadership Conference our chapter received recognition for the most new chapter members.
