The Community Leadership Summit 2013 brings together community leaders, organizers and managers and the projects and organizations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community.

The event pulls together the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.

At the heart of Community Leadership Summit 2013 is an open unconference-style event in which everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any topic that is relevant. These sessions are very much discussion sessions: the participants can interact directly, offer thoughts and experience, and share ideas and questions. These unconference sessions are also augmented with a series of presentations from leaders in the field, panel debates and networking opportunities.

SIM-Portland April Meeting - "IT Transformation at the Oregon Secretary of State"
University Club of Portland

The modern CIO is a multifaceted professional who has become adept in a full spectrum of IT, HR and business skills in order to be a truly effective technology change leader. The need for complete IT Modernization within an organization can be an overwhelming challenge that means drawing on everything in this toolkit and as well as industry best practices to transform systems across the entire spectrum of IT services and support. IT Modernization is often challenged by the competing business priorities, the need to deliver new functionality to remain competitive, increase efficiency or improve customer service, and driving effective organizational change.

Join us for the SIM Portland May 2019 meeting when CIO Roland Rivera will review what is happening with IT Modernization at the Oregon Secretary of State, and share the four step approach that he has used; benchmark assessment, strategic planning, technology road map and implementation initiatives. This has allowed foundational change around IT governance, portfolio management, service desk support and a Network Operations and Security Center. The Agency is now able to leverage Cloud Computing for improved business continuity and resiliency, and securing a path to become an IT center of excellence rivaling many high-tech firms.

Key topics that will be explored include,
• Challenges and Best Practices to IT Modernization
• Four Step Approach to IT Modernization (based on the Federal CIO Playbook)
• Use of Structured IT Initiatives to deploy different modernizations
