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.
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.
AIM Utah sponsors a big data special interest group (SIG) for the purpose of providing practical knowledge of big data solutions to technology executives. The SIG meets monthly to discuss questions such as: How do we create value from big data technologies? What technologies and vendors have been used to deliver meaningful solutions? How do we built and train effective teams to leverage these technologies? Experience and insight from peers provide invaluable resources in this rapidly advancing field.
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 scholarships and provides another setting for improving peer relationships in a relaxed and open environment.
This full-day event focuses on helping CIOs improve leadership and technology skills and drive organizational change. This conference is typically held in the spring.
