IDMA is soliciting proposals for curriculum developers and educational writers to assist in the development of IDMA's proprietary professional curriculum.   IDMA's mission is to enhance the level of professionalism in insurance data management - a mission accomplished to a great extent through its earned professional designations and by promoting life-long learning. Our current curriculum was developed in the late 1980s.  Although it has been reviewed and updated, the science of data management is expanding rapidly. Therefore, the curriculum needs to be updated and revised in a sustainable manner. This request for proposal seeks interested parties to help us research and develop the appropriate resources and material for a revised curriculum.

If you or anyone you know are interested in receiving the full RFP request along with copies of the newly developed curriculum outline, please email Farouk Yassine at or call (201) 469-3069.


Are you interested in hosting an IDMA Training Workshop at your company site or at your industry event?

IDMA offers five One-Day Training Workshops geared towards insurance industry professionals: Data Management for Insurance Professionals (DMIP), Insurance Data Quality (IDQ), Tools for Managing Data Effectively (TMDE), Data Governance and Stewardship (DG&S), and a fifth workshop, Claims Data Management (CDM), which is currently being developed and will be available in the summer of 2014.

All these workshops include practical discussions and case studies for interactive participation.

Our workshops can be offered in conjunction with industry events at the invitation of the event sponsors or they can be requested by individual companies who agree to certain easy to-meet terms. Workshops can be abbreviated and customized to suit individual company requirements. For cost, sample agendas, and additional information, please contact Farouk Yassine at (201) 469-3069 or


IDMA currently has three active chapters in the United States: The Chicago Metro Chapter (Midwest Chapter); The New England Chapter; and The New York / New Jersey Metro Chapter.

IDMA Mission Statement

The Insurance Data Management Association, Inc. (IDMA) is an independent, non-profit, professional learned association dedicated to increasing the level of professionalism, knowledge, and visibility of insurance data management.

Value Proposition

With every advance in technology, the value of data increases. Evolving and new technologies make sharing data fairly simple, but if bad information moves through a process, the costs grow exponentially at each step. Data must be managed to ensure quality, to ensure maximum benefit to the organization. If Senior Managers receive bad data, how can they properly manage? If Marketing receives incorrect information, the dollar value of lost opportunities can only be guessed. In the realm of regulatory or statutory reporting, bad data may create a liability for your organization. All of the Actuarial, Claims, Compliance, Finance, and Information Technology functions need reliable data to work with. The data manager's function is to provide other managers with the information they need to fulfill their role.
