NASCIO Leadership Refreshes the Association’s Strategic Direction

LEXINGTON, Ky., Tuesday, September 9 — 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 areas such as leadership and business innovation that are key factors in the evolving role that CIOs play as transformative government leaders.

“The NASCIO Executive Committee held a strategic planning session focused on the priorities and future vision of the association,” said Craig Orgeron, Ph.D., NASCIO president and Mississippi chief information officer and executive director. “The new strategic plan reinforces the association’s mission, vision, and guiding principles and strengthens NASCIO’s ability to support CIOs as state leaders and visionaries.”

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.
