DAMA I Board Meeting Update February 2019

A DAMA-International Board of Directors meeting was held on February 2, 2019 from 11am-12:15 Eastern Time. Several items should be of interest to chapter presidents.

  1. CDMP: Much progress is being made on the CDMP examinations. We are on track to provide exams at EDW in Boston for both the core exam and at least 2 specialty exams. Please refer to the EDW agenda for Exam Preparation session and exam testing times. Testing and real-world exam sessions are scheduled for those chapters that had to reschedule their exams. The exams are based on the DMBOK-2.

  2. Per the DAMA-I By-Laws, there were 3 changes to the Board of Directors approved as follows below. There was a mutual decision to reassign board members to better align them with their strengths. As a result both Jerrod Young and Lowell Fryman stepped down from their elected positions then were appointed to their new roles through motions that were approved unanimously by the board.

    • Eva Smith was appointed Governance and Ethics Officer, replacing Karen Lopez who held that position on a temporary basis. Karen will remain on the BOD as an Advisor.

    • Lowell Fryman was appointed to be VP of Communications and Marketing. Lowell had held the role of VP Online Services.

    • Jerrod Young was appointed to VP of Online Services. Jerrod had held the role of VP Communications and Marketing. Note: Both Lowell and Jerrod, in conjunction with the DAMA-I President and consultation with the BOD and Advisors decided to swap roles in the best interest of DAMA-I.

  3. The Awards Committee reported on the recommendations for the DAMA-I 2019 Data Management Awards to be featured at EDW. The Board of Directors accepted the committee’s recommendations and will announce the names at Enterprise Data World.
