I do see these CIO forum as beneficial. It enables me to connect and learn from other CIO’s in the area. Topics include: hurricane lessons learned, resourcing challenges, lesson learned on new technologies, etc. I found this latest one where we highlighted security and brought our CSO very beneficial. I really look forward to the next one where we will talk about the European laws and impact to USA companies. I belong to Gartner, but that medium doesn’t address our locally geographic items.
