[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Information Governance Initiative (IGI) and InfoGovCon are joining forces to drive the adoption of information governance. This strategic alliance, announced on February 19, 2015, will address the needs of the full range of IG stakeholders – from the practitioners in the trenches executing on IG to the executives making the decisions – by increasing IG literacy and promoting a common frame of reference.

The IGI is a cross-disciplinary think tank, community, and consortium focused on foundational IG research and executive education and collaboration. InfoGovCon produces an annual multiday IG conference that was created as a low-cost, peer-driven alternative for IG practitioners seeking education and networking. InfoGovCon also produces webinars and training, and provides a community where members contribute content, nominate and vote on awards, and discuss all things related to IG.

Executives of both the IGI and InfoGovCon believe that bringing the two organizations together will help IG to coalesce and mature as a profession, discipline, and market. The alliance will provide a multi-platform offering to IG practitioners that will deliver insight and tactics around the concept, market, and work of IG.

The IGI and InfoGovCon look forward to continuing to build and grow their IG activities with its valued partners including ARMA, AHIMA, The Innovation Enterprise, CDM Media, EDRM, ILTA, CFO Alliance, MER, and many others.
