Happy August Members. Well we have one more month of Summer and school will start again. We will again pick up our DAMA Program for 2018. We at the DAMA NY BOD hope everybody is having a great vacation. Some of you were interested in joining us for the scheduled CDMP Boot Camp which was scheduled at NYU Aug 1-3rd.  We had to cancel it because we didn’t have enough people interested in taking it and the magic number was ten which we never met.

Some of you have asked when the next one has been scheduled. The answer is we have not scheduled it yet. Let’s make a deal. Those of you who want to participate in a future CMDP Boot camp and exam, please drop April Reeve a note and address it to

  • September 27 2018 – Robert Abate “DMBOK2: Big Data & Data Science". Overview of DAMAI DMBOK "Big Data & Data Science"
