Booth 61 on 10/02 was a major HOME RUN! My guests were Alan Stukalsky, Managing Director, IT & CIO of Randstad, Lee Crump, Group Vice President & CIO of Rollins and Tracy Crump, Executive Director of the Georgia CIO Leadership Association, (GCLA). It was a real honor for me to host three people I respect and appreciate very much for all they do for Atlanta and Georgia. Lee was the 2012 CIO of the Year in the Global Category and Alan is a finalist for the 2013 CIO of the Year in the Enterprise Category. Tracy is the person who manages GCLA and creates extraordinary programming all year for the CIO members. Tracy is also the person who makes sure the CIO of the Year event is spectacular.
The GCLA CIO of the Year Awards Breakfast will be held on November 1st. This is a MUST ATTEND event. There will be 50+ CIO’s in one room at one time. Nowhere or at no other time will you find this many CIO’s together in Atlanta. In addition to learning about the event on November 1st, you will also learn the history of the Georgia CIO Leadership Association and its founder, Mr. Frank Bell, Chairman & Founder of Intellinet.
This year’s guest speaker is a legend in the technology world, Mr. Tim Campos, CIO of Facebook. Hearing Mr. Campos is more than worth the price of admission and when you add 50+ CIO’s and 900+ technology industry senior leaders, this is a DO NOT MISS event. There are a small and limited number of tables left for the breakfast. When they are gone, they are gone. Don’t wake up on Friday morning, November 1st wishing you had bought a table. Do it now to make sure you and your colleagues are represented at this once in a lifetime gathering. Buy Now: http://www.georgiacio.org/award.html
Needless to say, I am excited about this event. I am also very, very excited to announce Booth 61 will be broadcasting Live from the Cobb Galleria on November 1st.
