The CIO Perspectives Forums are regionally focused one-day executive events for senior IT leaders at mid- to large-sized organizations in the private and public sectors. Produced by CIO magazine in partnership with sister organization, the CIO Executive Council, these Forums provide compelling, content-rich networking events where CIOs and senior executives can collaborate on business and technology issues ranging from the impact of local economic conditions to the most pressing national trends affecting IT in the enterprise. The agenda for each CIO Perspectives Forum is designed by the 12-member Regional Leadership Council in each event location. These powerful advisory councils, comprised of CIOs from the most respected companies in America, work directly with CIO magazine's event staff to guide and approve the selection of topics for all agenda sessions, interactive workshops, keynotes and featured speakers. The CIO Perspectives Forums empower local CIOs to build sustainable professional communities, determine the most relevant conference content for their region, broaden the scope of their partner/supplier networks and update them on the latest technology solutions and services their businesses require.
