Wellington New Zealand chapter votes to dissolve.

According to the Wellington, New Zealand ARMA chapter's Web site, the chapter voted in July to dissolve its chapter relationship with ARMA International and instead become a branch of the Records Management Association of Australia (RMAA). ARMA has yet to receive official notification of the chapter's intent.

The chapter reportedly has been investigating the possibility of such a change for a few years. By becoming a branch of the RMAA, the chapter believes its members will be better able to travel to educational events, plus a more advantageous currency exchange rate will make membership more affordable.

"We certainly hate to see the chapter dissolve," states ARMA International President Juanita M. Skillman, CRM, FAI, "but we understand their reasons. I'm confident, though, that we will have many opportunities to provide services to and work closely with many of our colleagues there in the future."
