    BitmoGene Telegram - The 2018 Holiday Edition

    Happy Holidays!

    We start this telegram with BitmoGene's top 3 favorite things about the holiday season:

    #3: All the amazing food and fine wine that NYC has to offer

    #2: Saying "Mele Kalikimaka" to perfect strangers on the street and/or subway (especially after some wine)

    #1: Revving into high gear planning for the Annual Spring Conference



    Everyone's favorite third month is not just a word for what BitmoGene likes to do to the beat of his own drum.  It also happens to be the time of year that ARMA Metro NYC puts on ... 

     ... our famed Spring Conference!

    On March 5, 2019 at the AMA Executive Conference Center in the heart of Times Square, we will deliver four tracks of educational content, featuring some of the hottest topics and the most influential and sought-after speakers in IG.

    Our live educational events are flush with scrumptious catered meals, and are book-ended with mingling and good old fashioned networking.  It’s a great opportunity to engage with like-minded information governance practitioners, meet new friends, and perhaps reconnect with old ones.

    Our mentorship program is back in full swing and BitmoGene *really* thinks you need to check it out.  The program connects experienced mentors with those seeking guidance in the broad and bountiful fields of Records and Information Management and Information Governance.



    We're not just another pretty face planning stupendous educational events and hooking up mentors with mentees. Have you checked out the outstanding job postings on our Career Center lately?  The holidays are as good a time as any to spread those wings of ambition and see what might be out there for you.    



    One of the many amazing opportunities we have here in NY Metro is access to some of the hottest technologies, trends and thought leadership in the IG space.  Many of these opportunities come from our very own sponsor partners who are at the forefront of groundbreaking R&D and product offerings.  Check out some of the resources they have to offer     


    Volunteer and Benefit   

    We get it.  There’s a lot going on in your professional, family and social lives.  We have those too (some more than others).  But volunteering for your local ARMA chapter affords you tremendous opportunities in professional development, networking and new friendships that you would simply not get an opportunity to experience otherwise.  Why not take a closer look at all we have to offer:  And in turn, offer us your creative energy and fresh perspective on how to help lead our profession into the next generation.  It’s a match made in heaven.


    On behalf of the Board of Directors, wishing you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a blessed New Year!

    With smile and cheer from ear to ear,

    Eugene Stakhov, CRM, CDIA+
