I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to join me and members from your regional Governing Body at the 2009 Global CIO Executive Summit on April 14th - 16th at The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Our Governing Body has a personal objective for the 2009 Global Executive Summit - we will convene a meeting of the best minds in IT and together will strengthen our leadership skills, along with our commitment to building and preserving the strategic impact of IT on our organizations, our communities and our future prosperity.
Now more then ever, we as leaders, need to come together to collaborate on meeting the competing demands of the current economic climate and a greater than ever need for innovative technology solutions. Our agenda promises a timely and relevant focus on winning through adverse situations - economic, cultural and operational.
The conference culminates with our Top 10 Leaders Award - with a special focus on those "Change Agents" who have provided exceptional leadership in challenging situations. The Awards Gala will feature a keynote address by the worlds most sought after CEO adviser, Ram Charan author of the forthcoming Leadership in an Era of Economic Uncertainty. Called the "secret weapon" of CEOs, Charan's books include, Execution, Confronting Reality and What the CEO Wants You to Know. His current bestseller, The Game-Changer, is co-authored with innovation zeitgeist A.G. Lafley, Chairman and CEO of Procter & Gamble.

Our exclusive "by CIOs, for CIOs" invitation-only criteria meets the rigorous scrutiny of the world's leading CIOs and the format for this truly global gathering is unbeatable. Last year's conference was deemed a "platinum experience" that was "inspiring," "stimulating," and an "incredible collection of talent."
This conference will provide an unprecedented opportunity for our community to gather and explore new ways to maintain our competitive advantage in a global economy.
We truly look forward to seeing you in Scottsdale.
