Currently, DAMA International has affiliated chapters in Australia (Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney), Canada (Vancouver and Toronto), Italy and Scandinavia.

DAMA International U.S. chapters can be found in Arizona, California (three chapters), the Carolinas, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Texas (four chapters), Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and the Northeast Region. These chapters are individual organizations, each having its own officers and rules. Each chapter holds its own meetings and events. The chapters have chosen to affiliate with the DAMA International organization to promote information and data management as a profession, further information and data management principles and practices, share lessons learned in chapter operation and management, and enjoy the benefits of a common resources pool – such as speaker tours, speakers bureau, insurance (for U.S. chapters), a renowned data management annual symposium and more. The presidents, or their representatives, meet at least annually for the Presidents' Council meeting to assist the DAMA International Board of Directors in formulating and achieving DAMA goals and objectives.

The Board of Directors for 2001 are: Michael Brackett, President; Michael Bish, V.P. Member Services; Dawn Michels, V.P. Chapter Services; Davida Berger, V.P. Conference Services; Ingrid Hunt, V.P. Industry Services; Thom Harrington, V.P. Financial Services; Brett Champlin, V.P. Online Services; Deborah Henderson, V.P. Education Services and Special Projects; Burt Parker, V.P. Operations; Rose Romero, V.P. Communications; and Lynn Tenny, Past President. The Board of Directors enjoys the advice of a number of leading figures in information and data management who constitute the DAMA International Advisory Board. The members of the Board of Advisors for 2001 are John Zachman, Peter Aiken, Graeme Simsion and Terry Moriarty.
