Session Title: A Profession in Peril: Meeting the Challenges
The demographics don’t lie: A large percentage of current RIM professionals is on the cusp of retirement, leaving a gap of individuals qualified to take their place. At the same time, the profession is in the grip of change as potential employers are viewing the positions and needed skills differently.
What can individual practitioners do to meet these challenges? Donald C. Force, assistant profession in the School of Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Chrissy Bagby, ARMA International Director of Membership and Events will lead a discussion, with these learning objectives:
- Identify major threats to the RIM / IG profession
- Describe possible career paths for information professionals
- Gain an understanding of skills being sought by employers
- Gain an understanding of how ARMA supports professional growth
