With all the discussion and activity surrounding the upcoming Year 2000, I thought it appropriate to offer some insight into how DAMA, as an organization, is gearing up to greet the new millennium. In this age of evolving electronic communications, DAMA is striving to keep pace by implementing and continually enhancing DAMA's Internet services and Web presence. Through the DAMA Web page and this column, we have reached a large number of data management professionals who had not previously been aware of DAMA. Besides expanding the exposure of DAMA and serving as an information dissemination and education vehicle, our Internet presence has enabled more sophisticated and rapid communication within the DAMA community.

DAMA conferences, always noted for outstanding speakers and excellent networking opportunities, have expanded in scope to include topics beyond the traditional data administration boundaries. With the broader definition of DAMA (knowledge, information and data), the audience for DAMA-sponsored conferences and symposiums has expanded to include many different disciplines within business, government and academic areas. This broader focus is giving us a much richer blend of ideas and resources to share with this membership.
