School is in, the weather is turning, and yes, our thoughts focus on business again. At my office, fall is the time to get back into routine, to make sure this year’s projects get done, budget for the coming year, hold performance appraisals, update the business continuity plan – it’s a busy time!

How Do We Value Ourselves

Bill Hill, CFC, CFSP
FSCB Chair

How do we value ourselves? How many times have you said you were in the forms business and the response was "What? What is that?” It is even worse when you walk into a manager's office and that happens.

Has This Happended To You?

Joint BFMA / ARMA Meeting in Madison

On December 7 there will be a joint BFMA and ARMA meeting in Madison, Wisconsin to discuss "A Records Management Methodology - Its a Jungle Out There." Joyce Endres, CFSP, and Dawn Bluma will provide an overview of a business analysis methodology that enabled DWD to schedule records created and received within a workflow process or program area. The records schedules cover records in all media including paper, electronic (desktop/e-mail), imaged, microform, audio recordings, and System Application Records.
