Iowa CIO Forum Overview


Established over fifteen years ago, the Iowa CIO Forum was created by leading Central Iowa based CIO’s from some of Iowa’s largest organizations both private and public. Since its inception, the Iowa CIO Forum has grown in membership and value per member. The Forum meets monthly to share information in a confidential, comfortable and productive environment.

Covering topics ranging from offshore outsourcing to web services to best practices for vendor management, this group has solidified itself as a critical mass of IT leaders in Iowa. The Iowa CIO Forum is also the guiding force behind the Iowa IT Symposium which is an annual “by invitation only” event for IT leaders throughout Iowa and the surrounding states.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Iowa CIO Forum, please email or call 515-332-7940 to inquire about membership criteria.
