President's Report

DAMA NY Members,

For those of you who attended our January 25th meeting, “PMI Value to Data Professionals” with Beth Ouellette as our speaker, you already know you had an interesting topic to enjoy. For those of you who missed it, you missed a good opportunity how you could increase your value as a data professional through certification.

We have a really great program scheduled for you the first half of 2018 with topics like Data Vault, and Block Chain. Then we have our GDPR Theme for DAMA Day 2018, with six speakers already confirmed. We will be sending out our marketing flier so make sure you keep an eye out for it and register early. We will have our usual great buy for our Member Early Bird price of $99. We hope to see you at our next meeting on March 15th so register early. See you at NYU Kimmel center.
