About this event

ARMA Canada was established as an ARMA International region in 1968 and currently has almost 1000 members. In collaboration, ARMA Canada’s five western local chapters (Vancouver Island, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Saskatchewan) will be holding a Records and Information Management conference at the Coast Capri in Kelowna, October 5-7, 2022.

This conference is themed “Wine-ing About Records,” a reiteration of the very successful Whining about Records conference held in 2010. Also held at the Coast Capri, the conference was intended to provide an opportunity for members and non-members from a variety of professional backgrounds and levels to expand their Records and Information Management (RIM) knowledge, meet with exhibitors and network with their peers. Feedback was incredibly positive and after ten years of receiving continued requests to do it again, we’re well on our way to making it a reality.


The conference will take place over three days with sessions applying to three themes:

  • Records Management Basics
  • Records Management in Indigenous Organizations
  • Special Topics

We also will have special events planned including:

  • Rooftop Welcome Reception at CRAFT Beer Market on Wednesday, October 5, 2022.
  • Expo Hall of local vendors and business owners open throughout the conference.
  • Wine Tour offered by Sip Happens on Thursday, October 6, 2022. (additional fees required)
  • Networking opportunities throughout the conference!
