7 New CDMP holders in Seattle!

The DAMA Puget Sound (DAMA-PS) chapter hosted a two-day CDMP review course in Seattle on November 1-2, 2007. Pat Cupoli taught the class, with Eva Smith as a "trainer in training." There were 13 people who attended the training over the two days, and seven of these attendees achieved the CDMP designation. The DAMA-PS chapter has been supportive of the CDMP, and some of its members have been very influential in promoting this certification within DAMA. This was the first review course held in Seattle. The chapter was pleased with the results, and plans to sponsor another session in May 2008, which will be taught by Eva Smith.

With a little fun mixed in...
This review session in Seattle also provided the opportunity for Pat to visit Seattle, and for three of our board members to enjoy some tourist activities together. On the Saturday after the class, Pat and Eva (with her husband, Corey) met Terry Linkletter at the Seattle waterfront and took a day cruise to Tillicum Village on Blake Island. It was a beautiful crisp sunny day, affording nice views of Puget Sound. Pat also had the opportunity to visit the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA, or at least drive through it.
