Join the Council
We invite you to join forces with your colleagues and competitors as a member and active participant in the EDM Council. The organization is structured as a mutually-owned, 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association and was founded by senior participants in the financial industry to elevate the practice of data management as a business and operational priority.
Organizations join the EDM Council because they are proactively engaged in the practice of data management and endorse/support the underlying mission of the organization.
The agenda of the Council is determined by the membership – but subject to approval by the EDM Council’s Board of Directors. The EDM Council does not engage in lobbying and does not represent any individual constituency. Members look out for their own strategic and commercial self-interests and work with Council staff to manage the consensus agenda of practical and efficient data management.
Membership is on a corporate basis and benefits are delivered enterprise-wide. Membership is open to all segments of the financial industry – and the majority of EDM Council members are executive-level practitioners from financial institutions, data vendors, IT and software providers, strategic consultants, regulators and market authorities.
