The NASCIO platform is the most unique conference forum that I have had the chance to attend. It is uniquely positioned to facilitate peer engagement and custom collaboration with potential technology partners. The discussions were focused on our specific initiatives and whether [vendor partners] could assist.
I’ve been coming to NASCIO meetings for almost 20 years… the private sector and the CIOs come together, roll up their sleeves and work together as partners to uncover and address the emerging challenges that states are facing and figuring out ways we can work on solutions together.

Speaking at NASCIO Conferences
Conferences feature professional speakers for keynote sessions and largely utilize members for topical sessions.
NASCIO does not host a call for abstracts/proposals. Session topics and speakers flow through the NASCIO programs committee. This infographic explains the planning process. Members should watch the NASCIO Community for ad-hoc speaking opportunities.
Sponsoring NASCIO Conferences
Sponsorship is open to NASCIO corporate members in good standing in their second year of continuous membership.
Packages and registration open date will be shared via email with the organization’s primary contact, typically about 5 months prior to a conference.
Exhibiting at NASCIO Conferences
