OPERATIONS & TECHNOLOGY MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT Introducing ARMA International's GARP (Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles) and How They Apply to your Firm Presented By: Lorrie DeCoursey, Sr. Director of Client Development, Vendor Direct Solutions ARMA International (formerly the Association of Records Managers and Administrators) has developed standards of recordkeeping and recently introduced GARP, eight (8) principles of recordkeeping. Although GARP is intended as a framework and not a prescriptive, it was designed as a tool for organizations to use for information management and governance of records creation, organization, security, maintenance and other activities used to effectively support recordkeeping for an organization. ARMA's development of these policies has included legal assistance to relate principles to underlying ABA Model Rules and other authorities as they apply. This session will introduce all eight (8) principles with focus on how each apply to your organization, tips on how to assess your compliance, and steps you can take to apply these principles to your records policies. Lorrie DeCoursey has over 20 years experience designing and marketing back-office support solutions for the professional community. Her focus has been on supporting clients with innovative solutions, including redesigning workflow in delivering records services that significantly improve productivity, reduce and stabilize costs, and bridge technology with end user requirements. Prior to her career as a sales consultant for management support solutions, Lorrie spent 10 years as an Office Administrator with leading national law firms.
