July 31 2018 update to Membership

Greetings to the DAMA Community from Peter Aiken, President, DAMA International!

As we wind down this Board’s short (2-month) tenure, I wanted to offer a report on the happenings and more importantly the hard work that has been accomplished by the three volunteers who have been assisting. Members of a Board of Directors typically do not get involved in day-to-day operations, although the need exists here due to the current operational design. Hopefully the next Board will find remedies for this situation.

In Memorium: Rossano Soares Tavares

The worldwide data management community was deeply saddened to learn this week about the death of the Founding President of DAMA Brasil and our longtime friend and colleague Rossano Soares Tavares on 9 July 2018. Of many accomplishments achieved in his life, the translation of the DMBoK into Portuguese may be his most wide-reaching achievement. Professor, entrepreneur and consultant, Rossano was a role model for professionals who work with data worldwide. For those who did not experience his exuberant personality firsthand, the link below may give you a taste of his appetite and approach to life. We will miss you Rossano!
