Association for Information
Management - Utah
Our carefully designed programs develop leadership, inspire innovative thinking, and establish networks of IT leaders to provide support and ideas. Our programs allow members to learn and share best practices and improve the value of IT to their organization. AIM membership is targeted to the top IT leaders at organizations (e.g., CIOs) and their direct reports. AIM waives membership fees for all qualified CIOs.
AIM supports several programs to help our IT leaders be successful and deliver value to their organizations, including:
On the second Thursday of each month—September through May—we meet for lunch. In addition to the opportunities to network with peers, we invite industry thought leaders to address us on innovative ideas in technology, business, and leadership.
Each month top IT leaders in area organizations meet for lunch to openly discuss relevant topics such as progressive technologies, IT strategies, employee development and retention, and CIO leadership. For members in the northern area, this luncheon occurs on the 4th Friday of each month at the WCF building. For members in the southern area, the luncheon occurs on the 3rd Friday of each month. CIOs are welcome to attend one or both meetings.
This non-technical and highly successful program focuses largely on the critical “soft skills” necessary for successful leadership. Led by experienced leaders, AIM’s LDI has received excellent feedback from participants and is very effective for developing the next generation of leaders. The program is not limited to regular AIM members, and is a good fit for developing leadership within all areas of an organization. LDI meets one day each month for four months and is offered twice each year, in the spring and fall.
Members are encouraged to join these groups to provide another forum for discussing technology issues with peers residing along the Wasatch Front and in surrounding communities.
AIM Utah sponsors a security group (AIMSec) comprised of IT security managers and practitioners. A bimonthly luncheon meeting provides a highly-interactive peer-to-peer forum for sharing experiences and best practices related to the security industry. Vendor-free and member-facilitated, these meetings provide a great environment to discuss current issues and to network with other security professionals.
This sponsored event is one of the premier golf events in the state. Through the generous support of our sponsors, the golf event helps fund our AIM programs and provides another setting for improving peer relationships in a relaxed and open environment.
Top IT leaders join twice a year for an afternoon of networking and speakers, followed by an evening dinner and social event. Past experiences have included nights at the museum with family or dinner and a play for two at Hale Center Theater.
The members of the AIM Utah board have a passion for the success of the organization. We invite and encourage you to join with us and participate in our network and activities. The more involved you are, the more benefit received from your membership and association.
Thank you for your support of AIM Utah.
