CM Professionals, a group of content management professionals from around the world, elected its first formal Board of Directors. The new Board roster includes: Ann Rockley, President; Erik Hartman, Vice President; Seth Gottlieb, Treasurer; Samantha Starmer, Secretary; and Frank Gilbane. The election marks a kind of coming of age of the organization, which was formerly launched in October, 2004. Now with more than 250 members from around the world, CM Pros is expanding rapidly. The new board – which take the reins from an interim board – will be charged with converting a variety of strong program ideas from members into active initiatives. Early accomplishments include a resource gallery, active mailing lists, and a successful member “summit” in Boston, USA. CM Professionals is the premier community of practice for people involved with managing content for electronic and other media. CM Professionals collects, develops, organizes and provides access to knowledge about content management through online resources, email interaction and face-to-face summits. By identifying, refining, publicizing and advocating for respected content management practices and models, CM Professionals educates and fosters interaction among content management professionals, enterprise leadership, product vendors and university educators. www.cmprofessionals.org
With the start of this new group blog, I have decided to fold my technical blog, “Ideas in Technology and Publishing” into this blog. I want to thank my readers and welcome them to join the conversation here.
I have posted a PDF copy of my slides from the Idiom webinar. If you haven’t read our white paper on DITA, you can download it here.
