Member Spotlight -- Isaac Clark III

What is your company/organization name?  CALIFORNIA PRISON INDUSTRY AUTHORITY (CALPIA)

What is your title? REGULATORY COMPLIANCE CHIEF

How many years have you been a member of the Greater Sacramento Chapter and ARMA? Less than 1

How did you become interested in the records and information management industry? Part of my duties @ CALPIA

What do you enjoy most about records management? I am a proponent of order, structure, and efficiency and really hate handling paper.  Records management allows me to bring order, structure, and efficiency to regulatory compliance @ CALPIA.  Good records management allows me to access & find all documents easily.  Provide current & historical perspective on policies & guidelines while getting rid of all paper.

What do you see as your challenges today? Changing cultures are challenging.  Some love their paper and live in a “what if” world.  Some believe having the document in-hand is the only way of doing business.  Convincing them to do otherwise presents unique challenges.

Is there an industry best practice or tip you would like to share?  Let go of the paper and Scan, Scan, Scan.  The moment paper enters your world, SCAN IT.   Create easy to find folders where you can store/save documents forever if necessary while providing transparency and access to anyone needed.

What do you like most about being a member of ARMA? Available resources, Sac chapter is relentless, sharing of process, methods, and collaboration.  A willingness to help anyone seeking help professionally or personally.

Outside of records management, do you have any hobbies or activities you love to do in your spare time?  My real passion is BBQ.  I have my own BBQ Catering Business (www.ribsnbibs.com) and that is my seed for the future.  BBQ is a year-round sport.   There is nothing more satisfying than making people happy with BBQ.  When I see and hear one of my customers tell me how great the food was and how the food made their event extra-special makes me feel good.  I can’t think of any better way to impact people’s lives for the good than with BBQ.  I want you to EXPERIENCE my BBQ.  It’s all me & made with 100% LOVE!
