The seminar, dubbed an information governance boot camp, is designed to benefit records managers and administrative professionals as well as business, government and nonprofit managers; information technology specialists: and lawyers and legal administrators. The seminar has been approved for continuing education credits.

The seminar will feature Barclay Blair, founder and executive director of the Information Governance Initiative and founder and president of ViaLumina, an information and records management consulting firm. Barclay has been involved in consulting work with some of the world’s leading institutions to help them manage information and records.

Barclay is also author of the books “Information Nation: Seven Keys to Information Management Compliance,” “Information Nation Warrior” and “Privacy Nation.”

Barclay will present four sessions at the Grand Junction seminar titled: “Identifying and Coordinating the Faces of IG,” “Forming and Running an IG Steering Committee,” “Getting Started: Quick and Dirty or Big Bang?” and “Deep Dive on Remediation.”
