We focus on developing our members' ability to engage actively in their lives and society.

We value a good friendly tone where everyone thrives in a safe environment.
DAM association plans to develop the work so that it is more structured and professional, therefore we are looking for a skilled day-to-day manager to be the driving force in that development.
