February 14, 2013 Dinner Meeting So You Want To Be A CIO

So You Want To Be A CIO

Because this month is our annual "bring a friend" meeting we have a very special topic and a very special dinner selection including wine. See below.

This promises to be one of the most interesting presentations we've had in a long time. Please come on out for an evening of good food and company and learn something. Potential members and guests are welcome at our monthly meetings. Come and network with your IT peers. Invite your friends and make your reservations early.

This month's speaker is Bruce Brizendine. Bruce will tell us what is a CIO and why would you aspire to be one? Bruce will share his experiences as a senior level executive working to improve the flow of information needed by the organization to be a viable entity. The CIO position has ever evolving responsibilities in the areas of: Strategy & Planning, Control, Service, Risk Management, Business Process, Strategic IT Initiatives, Enterprise Infrastructure and Applications. In some cases, a separate CTO position may be necessary.

Bruce has an interesting avocation: he is licensed to perform weddings. He will also share these experiences with us and may attempt to tie these together. After all it is Valentine’s Day!

SPECIAL DINNER: To lure you out to this meeting, in addition to our usual menu we also have the restaurant's "surf and turf" (3 scampi and a filet mignon) and house wine---all at no increase in price. The last time we did this we had one of our largest turnouts ever, so be sure to make it to this meeting. Potential members and guests are welcome at our monthly meetings.  Come and network with your IT peers.   Invite your friends and make your reservations early.
