As vice president of conference services for DAMA International, my main objective is to increase the size and scope of the DAMA International Symposium and the DAMA International Europe Conference to enable them to become the premier conferences for information management professionals. The 13th Annual DAMA International Symposium and the 5th Annual Meta Data Conference were held in March in Anaheim, California. This was the largest and most comprehensive symposium in the history of DAMA International and Wilshire Conferences.

Over the past three years, attendance at the annual symposium has nearly tripled. The March event was attended by nearly 1,000 information management professionals representing 24 countries. The program included four half-day workshops, eight full-day tutorials, two keynote presentations and 60 breakout sessions. The event facilitated the opportunity for extensive networking and sharing of experiences between attendees and leaders in the field. An 80-page trip report is available at
