IDMA Chapters


General Information

IDMA currently has three active chapters in the United States;

  • Midwest Chapter (usually meets in the Chicago metro area)
  • New England Chapter (usually meets in Hartford, CT or Boston, MA)
  • New York / New Jersey Metro Chapter

Each chapter meets at least once a year where IDMA members are provided the opportunity to discuss issues of importance to data managers, their companies and the industry.

Topics of discussions are very fluid and can change during the meeting, provided they involve emerging data management news and trends, are in keeping with IDMA guidelines, and are of interest to participants. IDMA Chapter meetings attendees find these meeting very valuable for content and networking as they address similar data management challenges.

A happy hour reception usually follows each meeting. 

These chapter meetings and receptions are usually offered at no charge to IDMA members.  Non-Members are welcome to participate but will be assessed a registration fee.
