CIO Affinity Group

The Heartbeat of SI

At Scottsdale Institute’s core activities since the beginning, our CIOs comprise a well-connected Affinity Group that regularly convenes 20 to 40 professionals for Dialogue calls and in-person and virtual Summits. Discussion topics range from sharing ideas and strategies and the drive for innovation and transformation to changing CIO roles and future possibilities. Plus, if you want to know what your peers are doing and thinking right now, join SI’s CIO Affinity Group MS Teams site to facilitate ongoing, ad hoc, open discussion and collaboration among the CIO peer group.

IT Organization Chart Library

At the request of its members, Scottsdale Institute created an IT Org Chart Library as an opportunity to collaborate on structure and roles. Contact us to learn how to obtain access and contribute to this repository.

About Affinity Groups

SI Affinity Groups are intimate forums focused on a common issue, topic or collective challenge of its members, with a goal of information sharing around similar concerns, best practices, lessons learned, industry trends and resources to help organizations thrive.

Tricia Julian
CIO, Baptist Health
What a great opportunity SI affords CIOs to talk openly with each other about challenges we have in common so we can share insights and lessons learned with each other.  There’s enough pressure in these roles already; being able to have a trusted group of colleagues who want to help one another is a definite blessing.
