President's Message


We are off to another great program year for the National Capitol Chapter of AIIM. Our 2012/2013 program year ending in June was a very successful program year...


Important Information and Upcoming Events
AIIM LogoThe Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) supports an international community of professionals involved in the many disciplines that make up Enterprise Content Managment (ECM).  AIIM is the community that provides education, research, and best practices on information management and collaboration to help organizations find, control, and optimize their information.  NCC-AIIM works closely with AIIM staff to help deliver training and educational events to the Washington, DC area and Mid-Atlantic states.

NCC-AIIM LogoYour National Capitol Chapter (NCC) offers a unique Monthly Meeting each month (from September thru June) that gives members an opportunity for networking with peers in the industry, pertinent education provided by industry experts and inside information on what's important to your career, both now and in the future.

In particular, we organized a meeting with the writers community recently to raise awareness among young people about the role of writing skills in the successful careers of information professionals. During this event, invited essay writer and their colleagues told our audience about their experience in journalism, academic, and fictional writing, challenges they face daily, and the ways to overcome them.

During this meeting, essay writers explained the step-by-step process of writing an education essay. You can see them below:
  1. Choosing the right topic. This is the first step to writing a high-quality education essay. The topic should be both new, interesting, and meaningful for your discipline;
  2. Researching to gather references. If you want to produce a quality piece, you need to invest time into reading the most up-to-date sources on your topic. Remember to use the references as per instructions of your instructor;
  3. Processing the sources. You need to not only read the sources that you found but also note the thoughts and ideas from them. This is to construct strong arguments to support your thesis statement;
  4. Shaping a thesis statement. The central idea of your writing should be clear, concise, and powerful. Be sure to spend as much time as needed to make it sound persuasive and credible;
  5. Writing an outline. Always plan your writing to make your paper look consistent and interesting. The writing process will be easier if you have an outline as well;
  6. Constructing the essay body. Remember the key rule: one argument and piece of evidence per one paragraph. There is no need to list all your arguments in the first paragraph of an essay body;
  7. Making an essay introduction and conclusion perfect. These parts should be persuasive, clear, and corresponding to each other;
  8. Editing your essay. This is to remove all the flaws in your essay.

With a focus on the Federal Government, our programs concentrate on what's important in Washington, DC and beyond.  Check out our
