CIO Enclaves


In 2015, SCSIM launched a new program of quarterly evening roundtables—called CIO Enclaves—for CIOs and CTOs. Executive leaders from eight CIO Enclaves meet in Santa Monica, the Conejo and San Fernando valleys, Orange County, DTLA, the South Bay and Pasadena. 

Between 10-18 peer CIOs enjoy dinner in an intimate setting and discuss what’s working, what’s not, and how they can help each other.

SCSIM Winter Forum — March 15, 2018


Chris Laping, author of “People Before Things” and former Red Robin CIO, gave an inspiring talk on The Change Leader CIO.

Chris talked about the human dimensions that shape the work of IT leaders and ultimately become decisive factors in the success or failure of technology-led change initiatives.

Firesides


With two subsets of our members launching at venues in summer of 2018 in Los Angeles and in Orange counties, Firesides are an SCSIM program designed specifically for all the rising IT leaders reporting up to the CIO.  

Firesides will be more intimate than our Forums, and will take on many forms: town hall discussions, keynote presentations, panel discussions or interviews of guest CXOs, innovators or industry leaders.
