Join the Archives, Records, and Information Professions’ Decision Makers in the ARCHIVES 2017 Expo

“Building relationships is what this Expo is all about. When I make a purchasing decision for my organization, who I’m buying from is as important to me as what I’m buying. I just don’t have that same comfort level with a direct mail flyer or a telemarketing call.”

Elizabeth Adkins, CA, CRM
Director of Information Governance, Grant Thornton LLP

“The SAA meeting is our best and most important conference of the year. It has the largest concentration of our customers and provides the best opportunity to meet new ones. We have made so many friends through the years and this conference always serves as a grand reunion!”
