Welcome from the President of DAMA-NCR

The board of directors is expanding our services to members and the interested public.  This web site is a key facilitating resource to our expanding set of services.  Check out the calendar of events.   Events of related organizations will be listed or linked.  Check out the job openings and work ideas for volunteers.

We could do much more on this site, like book reviews, mind expanding exercises, and on-line forums.  Please help us out by becoming a member and volunteering to help us in our effort to encourage good data management.  It's through member participation that DAMA-NCR can become a strong and healthy professional organization.


Dave Beulke, President

Who is DAMA-NCR?

It stands for Data Management Association - National Capitol Region. Offices are in Reston, Virginia. Program meetings are hosted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a convenient site next to Union Station with excellent meeting facilities.

DAMA NCR is the chapter of DAMA International (www.dama.org) that covers the Washington, DC area. DAMA International is a not-for-profit, vendor-independent association of technical and business professionals dedicated to advancing the concepts and practices of information resource management (IRM) and data resource management (DRM). DAMA International's primary purpose is to promote the understanding, development and practice of managing information and data as a key enterprise asset. As a chapter of DAMA International, DAMA NCR shares its mission and objectives and operates under our chapter Bylaws.

DAMA NCR is a professional organization, staffed by volunteers, and dedicated to providing learning opportunities for all aspects of data management, including such topics as

  • data warehouse
  • data modeling
  • business rules

  • enterprise architecture
  • data quality
  • knowledge management
  • enterprise portals

Regular program meetings are free to members (fee for non-members, payable at door, check the Schedule of Planned Events page for the fee of each event) and are scheduled five times a year, from September through May. A variety of other activities are scheduled throughout the year. Volunteers are encouraged to participate (see work ideas for volunteers).
