Your Vote Counts! ASAE Releases Data Standards Draft

The ASAE Data Standards Task Force announced the release of a draft standard for expressing constituent records in XML. This standard will serve as a core for expanding into other data representations.

This first set of standards is absolutely critical for establishing industry-wide standards that all of the AMS vendors and other technology partners can adhere to. These standards will go a long way to making integrations from AMS packages to websites to other third-party services (think job banks, online registration, and grass roots).

So go to and review the standards, and provide ASAE with feedback.
