ARMAVI North Island Educational Symposium

Series of talks from Records Management practitioners who have walked the talk and implemented complex systems ranging from EDRMS to new classification schemes.
Our current roster of speakers include:

David Young, Records Management Archivist, University of Victoria – Taming your Email Inbox
David Young is the Records Management Archivist at the University of Victoria, and first gave this talk as part of a series on records management. It covers practical tips for bringing a large volume of email under control, as well as strategies for structuring one’s inbox to ensure that the contents remain accessible and uncluttered on a daily basis. Tips make use of Outlook features, but can be easily adapted to other programs. The relevance of this talk tapped a vein in the university community, sparking a viral demand for repeated presentations. Highly recommended for anyone who manages email, or who wants to help others manage email.

Sharon will contextualize this standard in her working experiences, and will touch on the intersecting issues of privacy, freedom of information, and organizational transitions.
