Why Should You Join OCITA?

OCITA is tremendous way to network with your peers. You can ask questions, share ideas, and learn about technologies that will help you do your job. Our membership is eager to help other members solve technology and business problems. The cost is very low, and the time commitment is open to whatever you want it to be. We meet quarterly, and we generally take a field trip annually.

Additionally, you are given free admission to the CIO Summit in Cleveland every year. This is a $995 value!

We also play a very proactive role in determining the content of the Ohio Digital Government Summit; an annual IT specifically for public sector IT employees that is hosted in Columbus.

Plan to attend our first-ever Ohio Public Sector CIO Academy on May 7th in Columbus, OH.

The Ohio Public Sector CIO Academy is the premier leadership event for Ohio's senior level technology executives (current and up-and-coming!) to improve their management and business skills and to develop the IT leaders of the future. The purpose of this invitation-only event is to foster discussion and dialogue on what it means to be a successful CIO in the public sector and how to use Information Technology as a strategic tool. This event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for government and industry executives to collaborate and address the most important policy, management and leadership issues surrounding the future of digital government and the role of the public sector CIO.

Topics Include:

- Multiple Paths to Being a CIO (or Not)
- It All Comes Down to Relationships
- Build an “A Team” – You’ll Need One!
- Strategic Visioning – Rowing in the Same Direction
- Aligning Expectations and Metrics with a Vision
