Message from Orlando Chapter President

Greetings, 2011 is a very exciting year! There is much to do and we look forward to seeing you! We are going to kick off the year with our first program meeting taking place on Saturday January 22nd at Valencia Community College West Campus Library. We are moving our program meetings to Saturdays. The first meeting will focus on:

"I.T. Workforce 2011 & Beyond: Skills in Demand"

This program meeting will focus not only on the skills that are in demand in today's IT workforce but what also trends within the industry. Also how to keep your skills current as well as position yourself to move ahead. Recently, at a recent CIO conference held here in Orlando, Florida, two common phrases that were often repeated were "Convergence" and "Collaboration". We are seeing convergence take place with consumer devices, in automobiles, household appliances and in health care. We are working smarter and being more productive via the use of new technologies that are allowing us to collaborate with partners in India, Brazil, China, and Ireland and Mexico.

We will over the course of the year, focus on "Convergence" and "Collaboration".  Share best practices; explore solutions and software packages that empower you to get more work done, be more efficient, cut back on time and reduce costs.

Please join me at our next meeting on Saturday January 22th at 10:00 a.m. and let us continue this conversation.

Thank you,
Pablo More, president
