The 2012 Municipal CIO Council Summit is being organized in response to positive reviews from Municipal IT Leaders across Canada of the first Summit, which took place in May 2011 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, and was the first of its kind ever held in the municipal sector.
A survey conducted among delegates to the 2011 Summit found strong demand for a second Summit because of the value they gained from peer-to-peer discussion of national issues such as shared services, allocation of scarce resources, enterprise architecture and identity management.
The 2012 Municipal CIO Council Summit will be held at Hamilton, Ontario, on May 31-June 1, at the Downtown Hamilton Sheraton Hotel. This year's theme is Changing the Nature of the CIO Role.
The Summit will begin with the MISA/ASIM Canada's Annual General Meeting in the afternoon on Wednesday, the last day of the MISA Ontario Annual Conference held at the same venue, and will end around noon on Friday.
As with the 2011 event, the content of the Summit will be designed for municipal CIOs and other senior executives of IT departments across Canada, regardless of the size of municipality.
