think spring

On Valentine's Day, ARMA Jacksonville kicked off Spring by hosting Suze Shaffer, a HIPAA Security Analyst with ARIS Medical Solutions. Suze graciously gave of her time by sharing practical advice for organizations interested in securing their systems and their data and preventing breaches. Suze's presentation is available in the "News" section of this website.

Privacy and security were hot topics at the ARMA Florida Sunshine Conference held in Orlando February 20-22. Knowledgeable and insightful guest speakers provided valuable information to take back to our respective organizations. If you weren't able to attend, or you would like to review the material presented, some of the presentations are available on the ARMA Orlando website.

ARMA Jacksonville's next meeting will be a campus tour of the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind. Records Management Coordinator and ARMA JAX Membership Director Kristina Smith will give a brief presentation and lead a campus tour. The cost is free for members and non-menbers and registration is available on our Events page. We hope you will join us on March 28, 2019 for the tour.
