AFFIRM

The Association for Federal Information Resources Management (AFFIRM) is a non-profit, volunteer, educational organization whose overall purpose is to improve the management of information, and related systems and resources, within the Federal government. Founded in 1979, and based in the Washington, DC area, AFFIRM’s members include information resource management professionals from the Federal, academic, and industry sectors. In supporting this purpose, AFFIRM seeks to provide its members with professional development opportunities in three key focus areas.

IRM/IT Education

AFFIRM supports IRM/IT educational opportunities by conducting seminars and related educational sessions where AFFIRM handles the entire event, by sponsoring seminars as part of larger events where AFFIRM coordinates the seminar content, and by promoting worthy events in the IRM/IT field being conducted by others.

Networking

AFFIRM provides networking opportunities to its members, by providing one of the largest virtual forums of IRM and IT professionals serving the Federal community.

Interaction with Policymakers

AFFIRM offers its members the opportunity to influence the development of IRM and IT policy in the Federal arena by providing the venue for members to interact as individuals, as opposed to members of their respective employing organizations, with the key policy development organizations. This opportunity is especially evident in AFFIRM’s Emerging Issues Forum, which focuses on the significant changes impacting the Federal IRM community. Findings and recommendations of the Emerging Issues Forum are formalized in AFFIRM White Papers. The AFFIRM website provides information about our leadership, the programs we conduct, the corporations that sponsor us financially, our Emerging Issues Forum, our newsletter, the AFFIRMation, membership, and membership benefits. The site also provides active connections into AFFIRM to register for our programs, and to submit a membership application. Should you wish to request additional information not available on this site, please contact us.
