Leadership Forums
Share |

The IJIS Institute sponsors special domain-specific Leadership Forums to focus on the information sharing and safeguarding needs in that domain. These Forums are designed to provide practitioner executives and CIOs an opportunity to network with their counterparts, to discuss specific challenges and needs in their practice area, to form potential strategies to overcome technology and system concerns, and to learn about technology and information sharing standards that can provide cost effective solutions.

Funding for the Leadership Forums comes entirely from industry participation fees which cover the travel costs for practitioner attendees and associated meeting costs. The size of the events is intentionally limited in order to ensure there is ample opportunity for rich dialog and learning.
