This month we continue our survey of DAMA's services to data management professionals. In our last column we covered the DAMA Web site, member discounts, financial services and membership-at- large. Other DAMA services to the data management community include: Education Services: DAMA International is involved in two certification programs in the field of data resource management. One of the two non-profit programs is the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP) Certificate Program, of which DAMA International is an affiliate member. The second program is the University of Washington (Seattle) Distance Learning Data Resource Management (DRM) Certificate Program. DAMA also maintains a recommended IRM bibliography. For more information, contact Anne Marie Smith, VP Education Services, at (215) 977-4676 or

Publications: DAMA now proudly associates with DM Review magazine. In addition, DAMA International and many local chapters publish their own newsletters, containing feature articles by DAMA's renowned advisory board (currently John Zachman, Clive Finkelstein and Larry English) and practicing DAMA members worldwide. DAMA also publishes the Model DRM Standards, now in its third edition, developed and maintained by Chicago DAMA's Standards Committee. For more information see DAMA's Web site at
