GDPR Is Coming.  Is Your Company Ready?


Beginning in May 2018, Europe will enact a new privacy law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  US-based companies are required to  comply with this regulation or risk huge fines.  This presentation will help in-house legal departments and compliance professionals understand whether GDPR is applicable to your company, discuss details of the new requirements and potential legal challenges, and provide practical steps you can put in place now to ensure you are in compliance by May, 2018.

Join us for this informative session moderated by a local member of IAPP (the International Association of Privacy Professionals).  IAPP is a resource for professionals who want to develop and advance their careers by helping their organizations successfully manage these risks and protect their data.   They are the world’s largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community. 

About our Speaker:

Aaron Charfoos is an accomplished privacy, data protection and patent trial lawyer at Jones Day. He litigated his first privacy case in 2010, building on nearly a decade of experience in patent and technology cases.  Today Mr. Charfoos also counsels clients in all aspects of privacy and data protection.  He is particularly focused on helping his clients address the new privacy landscape in Europe by putting into place contractual, compliance and educational programs that comply with U.S. and E.U. regulations.

Can’t leave the office for our meeting? Not a problem!

 We all know the benefits of attending live meetings, participating with the audience and networking with our colleagues. Sometimes, we are not able to leave our offices but still would enjoy the educational opportunities that Chicago ARMA provides. We have listened! 

ARMA Chicago now offers two ways to attend monthly chapter meetings. In addition to our fantastic monthly speaker presentations and networking lunches, ARMA Chicago offers ability to stream presentation content from the comfort of an office, a hotel room, or anywhere with an internet connection. Using CitrixGoToMeetings™, ARMA members will pay just $10 to watch and listen to monthly chapter presentations in real time (non-members pay $20). Online attendees can even ask questions of the speaker. In fact, ARMA Chicago is the first chapter in all of ARMA International to offer this meeting delivery method.

  1. RSVP for a chapter meeting as usual, via

  2. Specify you’ll be attending the meeting online.

Frequently Asked Questions

What prompted ARMA Chicago to offer streaming meetings?

For years, some of our valued members have shared frustrations with the board about wanting to attend chapter meetings, but being unable to leave the office. In order to ensure our chapter constituency has the highest level of access to meeting content, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to invest in this type of project. Although you will not have the same experience as a live audience, you will be able to “attend” the presentation, go through the educational content and even ask questions.

Will the meetings be “Recorded” or “On Demand?”

No. Those who choose to pay to attend the meetings online will not have the option to view the videos on demand. Content presented in the online meetings will be in real-time, and not recorded.

What if my computer does not behave?

When you sign up for the online meeting, the chapter administrator will provide a link to the webinar. During the sign-up process for the webinar, GoToMeetings™ will provide a list of standard system operating requirements. Please ensure your computer meets those standard system operating requirements before attempting to view the webinar. ARMA Chicago is unfortunately not able to remote troubleshoot or fix any chapter member or guest computer systems. Individual concerns can be directed to the Board of Directors at

Will the online format be available for all meetings?

With the exception of the winter and end of the year banquets and the spring seminar, it is our hope all meetings will be available in the in-person and online format. Unless unforeseen circumstances arise, we anticipate offering the online option for all regular chapter meetings beginning November 11, 2014.

Can I register at the last minute?

To ensure each registered online chapter member receives proper links and login credentials, the deadline for registration for the online format is 5PM on the Friday prior to the chapter meeting.

My schedule suddenly changed! Can I switch from an in-person registration to an online registration?

Once a reservation has been made for a particular format (in-person or online), you cannot switch between format. We appreciate your help and understanding with this policy.

Can I ask questions of the speaker?

Absolutely! Simply type your question in the GoToMeetings chat window and the moderator will ask your question at the end of the presentation.
