2017 Marks the 10th Anniversary of the Ontario Government
CCIO Breakfast Series
Event: CCIO Roundtable Breakfast Series
Date: Friday, April 21, 2017
Location: Ritz Carlton, 181 Wellington Street West, Toronto
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of ITAC successfully working together with the Ontario Government to host the twice annual Ontario CCIO Breakfast Series.
Hosted by David Nicholl (Corporate CIO, Treasury Board Secretariat, Ontario Government), his teams work with ITAC staff and ITAC’s Public Sector Business Committee to design and implement a program that is an open and transparent value exchange designed to encourage the sharing of information, opportunities, and IT challenges and solutions between industry and government. The goal of each CCIO Breakfast is to discuss how the IT vendor community can better support government business and cultivate more effective citizen-centred service delivery.
The benefits for ITAC and its member community are extensive. The CCIO Breakfast provides members with a forum to engage with government, hear first-hand their updates and learn about opportunities and future plans in a fair and equitable manner. It also provides an opportunity for vendors to establish contacts with government officials whom they might not otherwise have the opportunity to meet. By attending, ITAC members are exposed to government priorities to allow them to better focus their marketing and development specific to meet the government’s current needs.
