Call for Board Nominations

Hello ARMA Utah Salt Lake Chapter members! It’s that exciting time of year when we get to nominate and elect next year’s ARMA Board members! Our past-past-president, Kendra Yates, has volunteered to head up the nomination committee. A huge thank you to her!! The following positions have terms ending this year or needing to be filled:

Lastly, I would like to thank my 2016/2017 board for all of the hard work that they each put into making this a great year.

Being on the board is a rewarding experience.  Not only does it benefit you as you exercise leadership skills and network with others, but it provides you with the ability to make the changes that you believe will benefit chapter members.

I hope each chapter member will consider what participating on the board or on a committee will do for them professionally, as well as personally, and commit to going down that road in the future.

Chris Calton, Immediate Past-President (2016/2017)
