Are You an Accidental CIO? Get Tips from IT Pros 

Members: FREE / Non-members: $45

Description: Technology is growing and changing more rapidly than ever, and operating environments are increasingly complex, often leaving staff members to juggle more tasks with less resources. Smaller organizations frequently feel this impact even more than larger associations. Today’s successful association executive, regardless of functional area, title, or the size of organization, needs to ramp up their knowledge of IT systems to effectively serve their members. In this session, join two top IT consultants who will help you navigate IT, including topics such as: 

  • What fundamental questions you need answered by vendors and staff to ensure your technology success in the areas of Operations, Service, and Innovation.
  • Specific examples of where associations have succeeded with technology.
  • Common failures that may occur and how to avoid those risks.
