April: National Records and Information Management Month

Posted by Larissa Place on Tue, Apr 21, 2015 @ 11:04 AM

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb according to the proverb. But what does the month of April offer us? April 15th is Tax Day in the United States, the deadline for filing income tax returns to the federal government. Other April observances celebrate foods such as pecans, garlic, cheeseballs, and caramel popcorn. More globally-oriented topics are Russian cosmonauts, fun at work day, and world health. Some observances are month-long, including national poetry and poetry writing, jazz appreciation, Arab-American heritage, and stress awareness. In our industry we naturally pay special attention to April being designated National Records and Information Management Month.
