I am honored to lead an all-star cast in Denver for a hands on seminar designed to show attendees how the day-to-day of information management plays out in litigation through e-discovery. The event, which takes place on Tuesday April 19, 2011 from 7:30 am to 4pm at the Summit Event and Conference Center in Aurora, will highlight the ficticious case of Digital Candy vs. Samantha Grey and Sam I Am. Members of the Mile High ARMA chapter will star as witnesses to bring the facts to light all culminating in an argument before Federal Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado on the e-discovery issues. The event is open to all, but records managers, IT professionals, attorneys and information specialists who are responsible for information management and e-discovery issues should attend, preferably as a team from your organization so you leave as a team with a plan to move forward.
Cast members joining me include Sean Gallagher, an attorney with Polsinelli Shughart in Denver, Lindy Naj, Director, Records Management for the University of Denver, Brian Starck, Records Manager for RTD, as well as Jeffrey Cox of Improve Group and Wes Umemura from LuciData. Our agenda for the day includes the following sessions:
- The Role of the Legal Hold
- Mock Rule 26 Conference between counsel
- Mock Depositions of Key Witnesses
- Mock Hearing on E-discovery Dispute
- Panel Discussion: Takeaways from the Mock Sessions — What Steps Should I Be Taking in My Organization?
- Best Practices to Reduce Risk and Cost in E-discovery
After the mock sessions, and a luncheon sponsored by various vendors, I will moderate a panel discussion that will combine judicial, legal and records management perspectives on what you need to be doing now to tackle these issues. The panel will include:
- Magistrate Judge Craig Shaffer
- Laura McGee, Legal Analyst, Crocs
- Kathy Nielsen, Records Manager, MillerCoors LLC
- Stephen Dory, Global Records Manager, Oracle Corporation
- Sean Gallagher, Polsinelli Shughart
The seminar also includes a vendor area that will be open in the morning, during lunch, and I believe after the program ends, but don’t quote me on that. The annual silent auction fundraiser for the chapter will be going on as well, and the available items are updated regularly here.
Registration is open until April 13, 2011 and is $125 for ARMA Mile High Chapter members and $150 for non-members or guests. Students can come for only $100. Click here to register, view the agenda, and download the course materials.
