Governing Board Meeting Minutes and Notes

25 Jan 2012

Yahoo! Free Conference call


  • 1.     The next event and whether it will be the Lexis Nexis presentation or not
  • The initial interest from WPAFB contacts has waned due to incorrect conception that the software is proprietary.  Lexis must run government issues thru Nisha.  The event will be cancelled until it receives more interest.   Paul Hare will advise L/N of situation.
  • 2.     Future events
  • -      Allen Systems Group (ASG) has an MDM product – Rochade? – that may produce a good presentation from Rich Held.  He was coming to the Lexis presentation.  JP will contact registrants to refund $$ paid or make other arrangements.
  • -      We should promote the ICCP certification at DAMA DAY 2012.  Pablo will see about brochures, etc from ICCP.  Sam will look into participation from local colleges to see if they’d like to participate.
  • -      Discussed an event to link local universities into MDM and DM practices/ certification.  Tout what the certification will gain the taker…
  • -      Paul Hare will look into the Oracle Unified method
  • -      Sam will look into SAP HANA
  • 3.     Finding a replacement for Mr. Dubois
  • -      Vicki Blommel of Oracle User Group Dayton would be good, but is probably over-taxed as Pres of OAUG.  Pablo will follow up.
  • -      JP will write a request for submissions from people who would like to join the Board…
  • 4.     Setting up standing board meetings in West Chester
  • -      Paul Hare will investigate the Library…
