A group of thirty content management professionals from around the world has announced the formation of CM Professionals, an international community of content management professionals whose purpose is to further best practices based on shared experiences of experts and peers. CM Pros offers a members-only mailing list, a collaborative Web site, discussion forums, issue-oriented group blogs, knowledge wikis, syndicated Web services, a job board, a professional directory, and a calendar of face-to-face meeting opportunities. Bob Boiko, author of the Content Management Bible and director of the University of Washington iSchool CMS Evaluation Lab, will serve as president of CM Pros.
