What does ARMA stand for?

Originally, ARMA was the acronym for the Association of Records Managers and Administrators. Over the years, we have seen a broadening of the profession as records management has become a recognized and integral part of information governance, which is key to doing business. To reflect the changing environment and this "expansion" of the profession, the association's board of directors decided to discontinue using ARMA as an acronym and adopted "ARMA International" as a general descriptor of the association.

Why join ARMA International?

ARMA International has provided beneficial services to information professionals for more than 50 years. Established in 1955, ARMA originally stood for “Association of Records Managers and Administrators.” However, as records management became recognized as an essential part of information governance, we took on the name “ARMA International” to reflect the expansion of the profession.
