Booth 61 on Wednesday, September 11th was a blast. My guests, Becky Blalock and Karl Jennings shared all of the exciting things happening in the technology community for the United Way of Atlanta. This year’s IT United Campaign is off and running with an A+ team of leaders and is being chaired by Becky and Jay Ferro, CIO of the American Cancer Association.
Our first “public” event will be Wednesday, October 16th at AGL Resources hosted by the AGL CIO, Joe Surber. This is an event for companies who are either running an employee campaign or having leadership contributions exceeding $5,000.00. The panel is A++ with CIO superstars sharing their wisdom and wit including Jean Holley from Brambles, Karen Kreider from the Automotive Parts Group at Genuine Parts, and Janet Sherlock from Carter’s.
