Volunteering at DAMA-PS is a great way to network, widen your knowledge on topics relevant to data management, and help create opportunities to promote DAMA-PS. Whereas the commitment for a board member is the entire membership year (August- June), volunteers can assist on an as-available basis for our monthly and/or educational events. If you're interested in volunteering, please e-mail info@dama-ps.org!
