I couldn't agree with you more.  This is a great opportunity to make a
difference.  In particular, I would like to see some of the money used to help
bridge the gap between rich and not so rich countries.  There are many RIMs in
many countries in the world, where the need for good RIM is really urgent, who
simply don't have access to educational resources - either physically or
financially.  I think the ARMA Educational Foundation can really make a
difference.  I for one will put my money where my mouth is, even though it is
more like $200 in my money  - and 4,700 in Zambian Kwacha, 1,271 in Venezuelan
Bolivares, 43 in Thai bahts,  and  1,640,100 Turkish liras (Wow!).
So, give it a go...
Season's greetings to all.  Here's hoping that next year will see some progress
towards world peace, for a change.

I don't know about the rest of you, but the more I hear about the
potential for the Educational Foundation, the more I get excited about
it. The problem is, that there is a ton of potential, but very little
endowment to get the job done. As you may know, the Foundation is
running a "5/100" campaign right now to build the endowment. That means
that you contribute $100 a year over five years. If 2000 records
managers and information professionals committed to the campaign, that
would raise $1,000,000 in endowment. That campaign is meeting with
considerable success, but it needs more contributions from the
profession. So I'd like to suggest that you consider the Foundation
when planning your annual giving this year. If you need a tax
deduction, consider making the Foundation your beneficiary this year
and in subsequent years. The current campaign offers several easy ways
to make payments.

for more information on the Foundation see:

And if you're expecting a nice tax refund in the spring, consider
making a contribution then.

I'm in with a 5/100 pledge. Are you?
