The Law Enforcement Records Management Association, Inc. (LERMA) is a statewide organization which was formed on December 10, 1993. Its purpose is to bring records managers together to increase knowledge and efficiency among agencies. Meetings are scheduled three times a year to assist agencies with common problems records managers are confronted with, and to keep them abreast of ever-changing laws and procedures. In addition, there is an annual conference usually held in the fall. Currently annual dues are $75. LERMA has proven to be an asset to all who have joined.
