Addressing Standards - getting started

The City I work for (Roseville, California) is in the process of moving around the ownership of several data layers, so I've been asked to get involved with GIS addressing tasks.  I have not done addressing before, so wanted to throw out a beginner question - are there standards commonly used for GIS addressing data?  I've been told our data has to meet the needs of not just the folks tracking land development and assets, but also the 911 response community (it will eventually feed into a New World CAD system that is in the works). 


I've heard in the past that the National Emergency Numbers Association (NENA) provides one of the major addressing standards:

National Emergency Number Association


Is this the predominant standard?  Are there others?  How does one start getting educated in the GIS side of the addressing standards world?


(I suspect this is the realmJoe Borgione lives in).
