NASCIO Membership

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) is the premier network and resource for state CIOs and a leading advocate for technology policy at all levels of government. NASCIO represents state chief information officers and information technology executives from the states, territories, and the District of Columbia. The primary state government members are senior officials who have executive level and statewide responsibility for information technology leadership. State officials who are involved in agency level information technology management may participate as state members. Representatives from other public sector and non-profit organizations may also participate as associate members. Private sector firms may join as corporate members and participate in the Corporate Member Exchange.

Membership in NASCIO provides a wealth of information, best practices and networking opportunities. Here are the different levels of membership available with NASCIO. Contact Lori Rempe, NASCIO Membership & Sponsorship Manger at with additional questions.
