DMA at a Glance



DMA: Your Voice. Your Innovation. Your Ambition. Your Network.

Today’s DMA brings together a remarkable community of leaders in the data, marketing, media and technology ecosystem. We provide the Advocacy, Innovation, Education and Connections that are generating measurable business results today for our members and nurturing the next generation of data scientists, data-inspired creatives, data technologists and data-driven marketers who are pushing the boundaries of marketing.



DMA is Your Advocate

The ability to responsibly use data is the foundation of successful marketing and advertising. But at any moment federal or state policies and regulations could severely curtail your ability to use data. DMA is your advocate before Congress, the federal agencies such as the FCC, FTC, and all 50 states protecting your ability to responsibly collect and use data and ensuring that the self-regulatory framework is strong and robust, and pre-empts the need for burdensome regulations.

  • No matter how big your market footprint, you still need access to key players in the industry.  At Google, we take seriously our role as a leader and want to participate at a high level.  The three key pillars of DMA programs – connections for growing your business, tools to improve your talent and treasure and a voice for the industry – these are things that are important to my business, too.

  • Working with DMA makes sure that our approach to personalized marketing at scale is done in a great privacy-safe way for people and the marketers that represent them. DMA really represents and protects consumer trust and privacy – which is very aligned with what we care about at Facebook – but also in a way that protects the industry and comes up with industry standards that all data-driven marketers need to live by.

  • And DMA has always been at the fore front from the days of postal to the days of direct mail - evolving through to the current best practice and standards in digital marketing and beyond. And to have a place where we can all combine and meet and deal and tackle with the challenges we have today and in the future – that’s the job of DMA, and that’s why we are all here.

  • We started working closely with DMA in terms of delivering education to IBM business partners. We have thousands and thousands of companies that really carry our messages and offerings forward to our mutual partners in the market place. Many of these companies are small and don’t have the skills to do really effective marketing at a level that they would like to. Working with DMA, we’ve been able to deliver a very strong set of offerings to help them build skills and help them build their marketing capabilities into this new and changing world.
