Thanksgiving, christmas, Hanukkah, and Beyond

ARMA Jacksonville Chapter kicked off the holiday season with the Seventh Annual America Recycles Day! Board Members and guests braved fall's first chill to collect, organize, count, and distribute recycables of all kinds- electronics, pet products, toiletries, clothing, household items, and office and school supplies. Local animal shelters, Lions Club, Beaches Branch Library, B.E.A.M. and many other organizations benefitted. Oh, and drive-through, on-site shredding services were graciously provided by member Margaret Meier of UltraShred Technologies. Many thanks, Margaret, to you and your team!

CRA/ CRM Study Group led by Michael DeVanna, MLS, CRM, is going strong. For members interested in attaining CRA or CRM certification, please join the next session on January 12, 2019, at 9:00 A.M. Studying is palatable and pleasant! We meet at  Lucy's Sweet Shop, located in the Costa Verde Plaza at the corner of 25th Avenue South and 3rd Street South in Jacksonville Beach. Please check out our chapter website to view Michael's presentation "The Value of Being a Certified Records Manager".

To give everyone the gift of time and less stress, we decided to cancel the Holiday Social Event scheduled for December 20th. We hope to see all of you in the New Year as we kick off with a privacy presentation, "PT for PII- Get Fit for Privacy" on January 17th. Please see the Speaker & Event Schedule for upcoming, interesting presentations and tours.

I continue to be honored to represent you and our Chapter and welcome your feedback. Please do not hestitate to contact me directly at If your membership has lapsed, we hope you will join the ARMA Jacksonville Chapter at On behalf of the Board, I'd like to wish all of you the happiest of holidays and the very best in 2019!
