For more than 40 years, the ICRM has continued to be a leader in the Records and Information Management (RIM) certification.  The Institute recognizes the importance of partnering with organizations whose core mission is to advance the field through education, advocacy and professional development opportunities.  Partners may also include academic institutions and organizations that have related or complimentary certification programs.

A strategic alliance is a collaborative relationship that leads to success for both the ICRM and another organization and aligns tightly with both institutions strategic direction.

To discuss potential partnerships with the ICRM, contact Rae Lynn Haliday, CRM, Chairman, Strategic Alliance Committee, at or by phone at (314) 646-4572.

ICRM Strategic Goals

We recognize the following Partners where we have a long-standing history or are in the process of developing new initiatives that contribute to one of more of the ICRM strategic goals:


The LSU School of Library & Information Science, or SLIS, and the Institute of Certified Records Managers, or ICRM, have forged a strategic partnership to enhance professional education in the area of records and information management, or RIM, through a newly developed online graduate certificate.
