ARMA's Standards Program is dedicated to providing accurate information to
members of the RIM profession. To this end, the Standards Program develops
guidelines, technical reports, and ANSI standards to address new issues in
RIM, as well as establishing a foundation of time-tested RIM processes. In
addition, ARMA participates in the standards development process of other
organizations when a RIM perspective is relevant.
ARMA became an accredited standards developer of the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI) in 1986. Following requirements of standards
development under ANSI ensures that ARMA can produce objective standards
for the profession.
In addition to ANSI standards, the Standards Program is involved in the
development of technical reports and guidelines that do not necessarily go
through the rigors of the ANSI standards process. However, ARMA still
adheres to the principles of balance and consensus in these other
publications so they represent recommended practices from RIM professionals.

Cancer may have robbed me of that blissful ignorance that once lead
me to believe that tomorrow stretched forever. In exchange I've been
granted the wisdom to see each today as something precious, a gift to
be used wisely and fully. Nothing can take that away.
Hopes and dreams reign where cancer cannot go.
