ARMA Metro Maryland Chapter would like to thank you for your past support for many years as a sponsor of our chapter’s Annual Spring Seminar.  Your partnership and participation in this premier event of our program year has enabled us to offer outstanding educational programming for ARMA members and the broader community of records management and information governance professionals throughout the metropolitan Washington, DC area. Our seminars feature speakers who are experts and industry leaders from government, legal, and business communities, and they attract participants from not only suburban Maryland and around the beltway, but also from Baltimore, southern Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic region.

We invite you to once again join us as a sponsor of our chapter. This year we are excited to offer expanded sponsorship levels beyond the single-event seminar sponsorship, to give your company multiple opportunities to participate and promote your services throughout our full year of monthly chapter activities.
