About the Forum

IT LeadershipThe Northeast Indiana Chief Information Officer (CIO) Forum is comprised of Information Technology leaders (CIOs, IT Directors, and IT Strategists). We meet quarterly, generally from 7:30 – 9:30 AM in various locations, sponsored by the group or other strategic partners, to discuss IT issues, trends, and best practices. This conversational series of sessions are designed to allow the free and confidential exchange of ideas so that CIOs and IT leaders can optimize their Information Technology operation.

The Northeast Indiana CIO Forum self-select the topics. The attendance in the group is limited to optimize the discussion. It is not a sales meeting of any type, although we do review appliances, applications, tools, and methodologies. It is designed to help CIO and IT Leaders remain connected to technology trends.

Contact us at 260-403-5855 if you are interested in joining this group or sponsoring a quarterly meeting. Additionally, various corporate sponsors host networking and learning events during the year.




CIO Forum at a Glance

Educational Value:

Connecting with peers is great. It provides us all with invaluable insights but based on comments from the advisory committee we will now feature a technology briefing. This quarter's meeting will feature a demonstration of Microsoft's cloud communication/collaboration tool Microsoft Lync.


Relationship Value:

The forum members have enjoyed the predictability of our format; however, the packed meeting did not optimize the potential for building of strong relationship. At the request of the advisory committee, we will extend the meeting to 9:30 AM. This will respect your time and give opportunities to build strong relationships.
