Center for Information Technology Services
(Continuation of CIO’s Corner article from Front Page.)
In addition, the Forum had some professional facilitators at the general and break-out sessions. Sandy Hopkins from the UMB University Consulting and Training Services group facilitated the general session, and Brook Botvin, Robin Reid, Buzz Merrick, and Fran May from CITS as well as Sharon Bowser from the SOM facilitated the break-out sessions. Additional volunteers served as Table Captains, and Charlene Fitch of CITS managed all of the logistics.
Participant evaluations indicated that the Forum met the objectives of having an opportunity to meet and network with colleagues, and to discuss current issues in an enjoyable format. Consensus was that these events should be held on a regular basis, probably twice per year. There is a shared desire to continue the positive conversations and momentum of this Forum, act on the suggestions provided by the IT professionals, work together, and deliver excellence in IT service and support to the various constituencies they serve.
