BFMA was founded in 1958. Radical changes have occurred in business since that time and those changes are reflected in their business processes and the forms that support them. With changes in products, terminology, technology and performance mandates, the working world today is very different from how it was when BFMA was founded. BFMA is the trailblazer when it comes to bringing together real-world enterprise forms management, content management and information management leaders to discuss the issues and challenges that practitioners face every day, giving actionable takeaways that make a difference.
