The Milwaukee IT Leadership Forum was created by EFM and IT leaders from the Milwaukee area.  The primary mission of the Forum is to connect the senior IT leaders of organizations within Wisconsin, along with their respective senior managers, for the purpose of collaboration on common IT issues, objectives, and solutions.

The Forum meets monthly to discuss topics such as; Disaster Recovery, IT Security, IT Recruitment & Training and many others that are relevant to its members.  In addition to its monthly meeting, the Milwaukee IT Leadership Forum members are a driving force behind the creation of the educational content for the annual Wisconsin IT Symposium

If you are interested in becoming a forum member, please email or call 515-332-7940 to inquire about membership criteria.
