Dear Colleague,

The State of the CIO Conference is a little over 3 weeks away and I want to be sure I can count on your support as a fellow CIO. I've assembled what I believe are 10 compelling reasons why you should attend - I think you'll agree, with ROI like this, there's no reason to stay away.

Invitation Only CIO Breakfast - The State of the CIO Invitation Only Breakfast brings together CIOs and top IT executives from across several industry verticals, which means that you’ll be meeting with your peers. They’ll understand your challenges and be able to celebrate your wins because they’re in the same boat. 

Networking Opportunities - Technology leaders need to network with other IT leaders. Its that simple. The State of the CIO allows you to catch up with familiar faces and make new business contacts. 

Face-to-Face Business Meetings - The State of the CIO is a chance to meet face-to-face with potential technology solution providers. These carefully selected sponsors can provide invaluable new strategies to solve your IT problems, both big and small. Ask questions and get the answers you need to determine a successful solution for your organization.

Community Support - This year at the State of the CIO, you’ll learn about the Council's Advocacy initiatives and how, with your help, we are awarding scholarships and placing interns as well as working on higher education curriculum with local Schools, Colleges and Universities.

Intimate Setting - The State of the CIO agenda is designed to ensure that your ideas and opinions can be shared with your peers.

Return on Investment - Your organization expects ROI. The same is true at the State of the CIO. We expect our attendees to achieve ROI, leaving the event with new ideas, new solutions and new industry contacts.

Thoughtful Agenda - The State of the CIO agenda balances panel discussions with networking and presentations. We'll make sure that you're productive, without being overwhelmed. 

Focused Environment - The State of the CIO includes keynote, panel discussions and one-on-one meetings. You’ll be away from your desk, but still making strides on your organization's current goals. 

Learning Opportunity - To make the best decisions, you need to be up-to-date on the latest IT trends. We determine which topics really matter and make sure you get the chance to discuss them with your peers. 

Step Back - Day-to-day tasks can cloud your thinking. Look at the big IT picture. The State of the CIO will allow you to tackle the technology issues that matter.

Bonus - By attending the The State of the CIO Invitation Only Breakfast, you’ll have the opportunity to receive a free copy of "How Strategic CIOs Provide Transformation Leadership in the Digital Age" by Phil Weinzimer.
