Monthly Meetings – Seven Meetings per Year + Member Rate at the Annual Grand Rapids IT Symposium
One of the major benefits for ITMA members is peer group interaction. Our members like the formal networking each month. In addition, they enjoy the informal access to other members by a single phone call, e-mail, and face-to-face visits.
Grand Rapids IT Symposium
In 2012 ITMA partnered with EFM to bring the 1st Annual IT Symposium to Grand Rapids. This conference is modeled much like ITMA. The day-long event is geared towards IT Practitioners and features exceptional key note speakers, a CIO panel discussion and breakout topics presented by West Michigan IT Professionals.
Initiated by members or sponsors, focus groups are formed to address specific issues. We have a few larger consortiums, or “thought verticals” (health care, school systems, etc) we would like to accommodate in this meeting segment. Past topics have included: doing business in foreign markets, security issues, business continuity / disaster recovery planning, etc.
The ITEC Council is a network of infrastructure technology executives from enterprise size organizations that meet for formal and informal connection, sharing, and collaboration on topics that are mutually beneficial. ITMA Members receive a discounted rate on an iTEC membership.
ITMA has even, in some cases, facilitated finding members who are ready and willing to collaborate and offer practical assistance to you with your technology solutions. Members report this benefit as invaluable by saving them both time and money while exploring new solutions for their organizations.
