Presidents Report

To DAMA NYC Members

Well it certainly has been a cold cold Winter so far with lots of snow. However, we  just have a few more weeks to go and Spring will be here. We had an excellent meeting in January with Beth Ouellette, MAGI  speaking on Discipline Agile. We had over 52 people register for the event so thank you for making it a successful event.

I must say our 2020 - 2021 DAMA NYC Virtual program has been very successful. It has also given us a practical approach for most of you, since you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home office to participate.

Lets keep the success of our program going. Please consider registering for our next meeting on March 18th featuring Joe Caserta, Caserta Concepts. Joe will be speaking on “Operationalizing Data Governance”. This is a hot topic. Many organization are not sure how to get beyond the Data Governance Assessment. How do I establish a game plan to roll our data governance. What things need to be completed and in what order. Please plan on registering for this important event. BTW this also will be a Zoom virtual event.

I urge all of you to check out the whole program for 2021, We have a great program planned with speakers like Joe Caserta, Don Soulsby, Len Silverston and Peggy Tsai, just to name a few.
