Association) to create an advocacy platform for information management.
The partners have come together to provide a bigger voice on behalf of
their members to promote the benefits of good information management and
the value of information management practitioners’ expertise to the UK
economy, society and the well being of its people.
The Alliance is an informal partnership of equal parties with clear
objectives to build advocacy by means of both qualitative and quantitative
evidence, aiming to influence governments, business leaders and decision
makers in the UK.
Activity and work programmes will be developed and delivered across 2015.
Meic Pierce Owen, IRMS Chair said:
'IRMS enters this alliance with high hopes for what it might be able to
achieve. Working in an even an open manner with our partners, we believe
that together we can have a clear and powerful voice for advocacy that can
influence effectively at a high political level across the UK to deliver
the key message of the value of good Information Management practice to
the UK economy and society. The more effective the delivery of this
message, the greater the benefit to all in the Sector. We have asked our
membership and they concur- the IM Alliance has the potential to deliver
this message more effectively that we can as individual associations. We
are excited by its potential!'
