On behalf of the Information and Records Management Society, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us for the prestigious 12th Information and Records Management Society Conference, ‘Back to the Future?’ taking place from Sunday 19th April to Tuesday 21st April 2009.
In keeping with our conference title, we are also returning to one of our most popular conference destinations. Brighton provided such a stunning setting for the 2007 conference we are delighted to be returning in 2009 with a bigger and bolder conference!
Along with stunning views, the opportunity to build sand castles and to walk along the pier, Brighton is also home to the Hilton Brighton Metropole, which is the perfect venue for IRMS 2009.
The IRMS Conference is famed as a friendly and social gathering, where debate and network opportunities abound. This year you can look forward to an extensive programme, a bigger and more innovative exhibition and a fun packed social programme.
I urge you to book your place today. Don't miss out - join us as we go Back to the Future in Brighton 2009.
Dr Paul Duller
The conference will address current challenges faced by our profession, within the framework of four key themes:
- Standards in Practice: Help or hindrance? Fit for purpose?
- Training and Development: Management skills, careers advice, accreditation
- Technology: Who are the key players in the computer game? What’s next … and why?
- Transformation and Change: Ourselves, our organisations, our profession
