Co-chair, IT United
It has been a pleasure to be part of IT United for the past five years and to experience the growth and impact it’s had on our community. In the last five years, we have grown our Chief Information Officer (CIO) Advisory Board from five to 25 and our council of 17 to over 300 members, all who recognize the important work United Way does.
I am also so proud of our accomplishments, including our 5th annual CIO Forum happening this week, technology career fairs for students, an app for Pearls for Teen Girls, job shadows and helping the Boys & Girls Clubs teach their first programming class to 8 to 11 year olds. It is very exciting work!
IT United membership is a great opportunity for Information Technology professionals to network with IT leaders in Milwaukee, use skills to make an impact in the community and support students who want to pursue a career in IT.
2014 IT United CIO Forum
As a thank you to our members, we also hold an annual IT United CIO Forum. On February 20, we will bring IT professionals from across the area together to network and learn from the CIOs of prominent Milwaukee area companies. The panel will discuss key technology trends, high level strategy, and professional development topics.
IT United members and United Way Leadership Society members are invited to register for the event. The CIO Forum is facilitated by our CIO Advisory Board and IT United Council.
I hope to see you all Feb 20!
