    A Message from the President of the ARMA Board of Directors

    Announcing the 2017 ARMA Board of Directors

    It’s my honor as your president of the ARMA board to announce the election results for the 2017 ARMA board of directors.

    I want to thank our many members who took this important opportunity to help shape the ARMA board and the future of ARMA International. The industry faces many challenges but holds even more opportunities. The continued support of our members, combined with the leadership of the ARMA board, will help shape our future plans and success.

    Our new president-elect for ARMA International is Ryan M. Zilm, IGP, CRM, CIP.

    Zilm, a current board member, is manager, records & information governance, at Tesoro Companies, Inc. He is a past president of the ARMA Tulsa chapter, a former ARMA Houston program committee manager, and former VP of marketing & technology for ARMA Rio Grande. He’s been awarded the chapter member of the year three times and chapter leader of the year twice.

    In the profession since 1998, Zilm has helped develop ARMA International’s Glossary of Records and Information Management Terms and has earned several industry certifications, including IGP. He is also a CRM Part 6 mentor, grader, and presenter. Earlier, he was in the IT field in the energy industry and now brings that vital expertise to his role as well.

    I’m also pleased to announce our new director to the ARMA board is Susan Goodman, IGP, CRM, CIP, FAI

    Goodman is a long-time contributor to all things ARMA. Last fall, she was inducted into the ARMA International Company of Fellows. She has chaired the ARMA International Publications Coordination Committee, served as a RIM and privacy SME for various ARMA courses and publications, facilitated numerous educational sessions at the annual conference and elsewhere, and served as president of two ARMA chapters.

    Among her many impressive credentials are the IGP, CRM, CIP, CIPP, and CIPM. She also has a Master of Library Science degree and has completed advanced studies at the University of Michigan, with a focus on electronic records. In her 30-year career, she has served as a senior-level professional in RIM, IG, and privacy in organizations of varying sizes and industries. A natural leader and strategic thinker, she will hit the ground running as a new director.

    I know you join me and the ARMA International organization in congratulating Ryan and Susan on their new roles. Our board is now complete and comprised of the industry’s best ambassadors!  

    The complete list of the current board is available here on the website:

    Thank you again for your participation and continued commitment to ARMA.
