RI CIO Forum

The Rhode Island CIO Forum aims to establish an environment where CIOs can meet to expand their network and advance information technology thinking within the state. The CIO Forum is led by a steering committee made up of CIOs from: banks, universities, insurance agencies, small and large companies.  It is responsible for not only the creation of content for the CIO forum group but helps advise the direction of the Tech Collective
