"Forms Management - Developing and Growing a Forms Program"
You have lots of forms in your company - too many in your opinion. Who's creating them? How much are we spending on them? Is anyone controlling them? Is there a connection between forms and records?
These are just a few of the questions you may be asking if you're considering how to manage the forms in your company.
Program: Tom Shull, will discuss how to get your arms around the problem and develop solutions. Managing forms can be a daunting challenge. Where do you start? What do you really focus on? Tom will share his experience in developing and maintaining programs for two large corporations. He will cover topics such as the basic components of a program, getting support for your efforts, using standards to promote efficient forms, managing paper and electronic forms, metrics and other important considerations.
Speaker: Tom Shull is the Forms and Records Manager for Weyerhaeuser Company, based in Federal Way, WA. He is responsible for the Forms Management and Records Management departments. Forms Management includes the development and procurement of both paper and electronic forms at Weyerhaeuser. He has over 25 years experience in the forms industry. Tom is a Certified Forms Consultant and a past President of the Northwest Washington chapter of the Business Forms Management Association, and an active member of the Puget Sound Chapter of ARMA.
