NASCIO Leadership Refreshes Goals and Objectives

LEXINGTON, Ky., Thursday, July 26, 2012 — Top state information technology leaders for the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) have selected to adopt a new strategic plan aimed to put a stronger emphasis on CIO leadership.

“The NASCIO Executive Committee held a strategic planning session focused on the priorities and future vision of the association,” said Dugan Petty, NASCIO president and Oregon chief information officer. “The new strategic plan reinforces the association’s mission, vision, and guiding principles and strengthens NASCIO’s ability to support CIOs as state leaders.”

NASCIO relies on its strategic plan to guide the development of the annual business plan and supporting performance measurement. Strategic initiatives to be addressed are determined by the Executive Committee after assessing state member priorities, as well as emerging national trends and issues. The complete strategic plan is available at
