are beginning to understand what IG practitioners have been preach- ing for a long time: we must make that evolutionary leap and truly change the fundamentals of our relationship with information. These patterns are only going to expand, and really the only way to keep up with it all is to see Information Governance for what it is: a top-down strategy and not a toolkit or product. We live in times of renaissance. We are compelled to be creative, flexible and forward-thinking in our approach to information govern- ance. We have a solemn responsibility to get it right. So, with that thought, on behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome you to the 2018-2019 ARMA Metro New York City season in this inau- gural issue of our award-winning publication. I hope that in the coming months and years, you will be more en- gaged than ever in joining us to help usher in the next great genera- tion of Information Governance technologies, practices and, of course, people. Looking forward to seeing you at a Chapter meeting! Fondly, Gene Stakhov, CRM, CDIA+ President, ARMA Metro NYC Chapter president@armanyc.org 7
