To form a professional association, it is necessary that a profession exist or is going to exist. People want to evolve a profession from their occupation. Lawyers, medical doctors, dentists, architects, computer system engineers, nurses, and barbers are examples. For records management, questions arise. Is records management a profession? Is a records manager a professional? Pemberton and Pendergraft won the 1990 Britt Literary Award for the most outstanding article published in the Records Management Quarterly during 1990. The first line of its abstract reads, “Being a ‘professional’ means more than merely being an expert in one's chosen field.”
