BIA to Present at Joint AIIM Grand Canyon and ARMA Arizona Chapter Meeting

Program to Focus on the Strategic Role of IG in Preservation and Hold

NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2014 Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), a leader in legal preservation and eDiscovery software and services, today announced that Alon Israely, Esq., CISSP will co-present with John Isaza, Esq., FAI at a joint chapter educational event for the Phoenix chapters of AIIM and ARMA.

“I volunteer as much time as I am able in service to the associations who educate our industry, and so fortunate that we at BIA have the level of support for that work. In my role as President of the AIIM Grand Canyon Chapter, I wanted to execute on our vision to provide a high level educational program that focused on the strategic roles of our membership in the process of preservation and hold, and was thrilled when BIA and John Isaza agreed to donate their time to this effort,” said Robin Thompson VP of Marketing for BIA.

Highlights of this program include a discussion around:

“With more education being requested about how information managers and governance professionals can move from tactical roles to strategic roles in the discussions their companies are having about information, this is a perfect program for our chapter, and the Valley is fortunate to have speakers of this caliber here to educate our joint memberships,” said Thompson. “In fact, the data that I use to analyze and forecast the market, shows that more and more job descriptions for corporate positions involving preservation and hold call for experience in RIM or IG. Corporations are recognizing the value of the knowledge and skills of our membership,” said Robin Thompson.

“AIIM Grand Canyon and ARMA Arizona are both very active chapters with several sharped members. It was time to put forth a combined, local event to best serve our members challenged with having to choose one organizations’ event over another,” said Liz Carrera of The Apollo Group and President of ARMA Arizona.


Registration is still open.
