IRMS Midlands

Contact: IRMS Midlands

IRMS Midlands has been active since June 2006 when the first meeting was hosted by the British Geological Survey in Keyworth, Nottinghamshire. Our meetings are held at 4 monthly intervals at various venues around the Midlands.

The Group would like to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and information, plus a means of mutual support for all records management practitioners. If you would like to join this group please contact the IRMS Midlands Group for more details.

We welcome suggestions for themes/topics for future meetings. If you would like to offer a venue for a future meeting or would be willing to speak at a meeting please contact Matthew Smith. Likewise, if your company is able to sponsor a meeting, we would be pleased to hear from you.
