The Deputies Leadership Summit provides an opportunity for in-person and expanded networking for individuals serving a critical and vital role in the state CIO organization. The State CIO will select one deputy official from their state/territory to register for this new Deputies Leadership Summit. And, as a reminder, this event will be held in conjunction with the CIO, CISO and Chief Privacy Officer Leadership Summits, so in addition to networking with other deputy officers, they’ll also have the opportunity to network with attendees of the other Leadership Summits.


NASCIO is excited to host the Deputies Leadership Summit in Rancho Mirage, California, on July 25-27, 2023



The 2023 Deputies Leadership Summit will be held at the Westin Rancho Mirage. NASCIO will book rooms for arrival on July 25 and departure on July 28 – if a different arrival/departure is required, please contact Lisa Thompson.


NASCIO will provide a $600 travel stipend to all attendees. Attendees should book and pay for their travel and will be provided instructions after the event on how to submit receipts for the reimbursement.

The Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) is the closest and most convenient airport to the hotel.

For travel planning, the welcome reception will start at 6 pm ET on Tuesday, July 25 and the Summit will wrap-up at 4:30 pm on Thursday, July 27.

You can reference the draft agenda for travel planning.
