NASCIO Launches State CIOs Make a Difference Campaign

 
The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) has launched the 2017 State CIOs Make a Difference campaign. The campaign, which will run through mid-June, emphasizes the important role CIOs hold in government operations and the innovative and strategic work they lead.

“Information technology is no longer simply the infrastructure on which state government runs, but is an integral and integrated component in how government imagines, plans and delivers services.” said Mark Raymond, NASCIO President and Connecticut Chief Information Officer.  “IT is the fabric of state government and very often the face of state government. This campaign showcases the substantial and diverse ways state CIOs are making a difference for their states through information technology.”  

Six states – Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Tennessee, California – will be featured in the campaign, each for a two-week period. Videos, narratives and facts specific to each state will be shared at www.nascio.org/CIOs; new content will be added throughout the two-week period.
