One of the best parts of 2020: Your contributions to this community. Thank you.

As we close out 2020, a lot of people are saying “good riddance” — and who can blame them?

But, if there's one silver lining for all of us, it's how much this community grew and came together as a critical resource for the people leading data strategy at the world’s biggest companies.

Data Board members made a hard time much more manageable for one another this year.

Here's a look at the big numbers:

  • 35 Community Calls with record participation (you and your fellow members dialed into these conversations 246 times!).
  • Our biggest Community Call of the year was focused on building and scaling a center of excellence for analytics, with 17 members on the line.
  • 83 Fast Feedback conversations on topics you can't talk about anywhere else.
  • 38 new members: Autodesk, Bell Canada, Bridgestone, Canada Post, Charles Schwab, Chick-fil-A, CIBC, Cineplex Entertainment, Constellation Brands, Ferguson Enterprises, Franklin Templeton, Honda Canada, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, J.R. Simplot Company, Lockheed Martin, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, McDonald's, Navient, Navy Federal Credit Union, Newell Brands, NiSource, Otsuka, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Regions, Rogers Communications, Shaw Communications, Sleep Number, Sodexo, Steelcase, T-Mobile, TD Ameritrade, Thrivent Financial, Travelers, United Rentals, and Zurich North America.

We’re grateful for all of your contributions as this community continues to grow.

No matter what 2021 has in store for us, know this community will always be here for you.
