There’s a better way - read on as we explore the importance of Disposition.
Allow me to introduce you to Wendy McLain, Manager of Enterprise Content & Records Management at Valero. Valero is a publicly-traded international oil and gas company, with revenue in the billions of dollars. Wendy will be presenting at The AIIM Conference 2018. Her session is called "How We Learned to Love Event-Based Retention: A Valero Energy Case Study in Records Management." I thought this would be a great time to catch up with Wendy and ask her some questions.
AIIM takes great pride in being an active member of our community. We’re always trying to find new ways to give back - we have staff volunteer days, make donations to charity for responses to our surveys, and have given our time at homeless shelters, food kitchens, working farms, charity runs/walks and clothing drives. Now, we want to get YOU involved in the giving during The AIIM Conference.
