Sheila Taylor has been appointed to ARMA International’s Content Editorial Board (CEB). The CEB is responsible for aiding ARMA International in unifying and streamlining content development processes across all formats. The primary role of the task force is both strategic and tactical.
Task force members are to be conversant with ARMA International’s strategic plan and use it as guidance for developing and evolving the strategic plan for developing content for all formats (i.e., books, standards/technical reports/guidelines, Information Management magazine, conference education, online education). They are responsible for scanning the environment continually to identify records management and information governance trends and, specifically, the knowledge, skills, and best practices that information professionals and the business community need to address those trends.
Tactically, CEB members:
* Discuss trends identified from environmental scanning, identify topics around which content needs to be developed, and help develop the scope for that content
* Identify areas of focus for the program year and flesh out editorial calendars for such things as web seminars, online courses, certificate programs, and live education (including conference education)
* Review magazine/standards/book proposals and draft articles/manuscripts against criteria
