We had to wait until April 2nd to post this, because RIM month is NO JOKE! But we do have a few fun blog posts planned for this industry-related celebration, so stay tuned.
Records and Information Management Month (RIMM) is celebrated internationally for the month of April to promote the RIM profession and to highlight the impact that RIM has on business. The purpose is to emphasize the value and importance of organizing and maintaining records in all media for the efficient and effective management of any organization.
RIMM was first observed in 1995 as National Records and Information Management Day, through the efforts of members of the Association of Records Managers and Administrators (ARMA) U.S. Government Relations Committee. The purpose was to bring attention to the cause of passing the renewal of the U.S. Paperwork Reduction Act. Over time, the observance grew to cover a week in 1997, and a month in 2003, and now extends beyond U.S. borders to other countries.
