Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the collective 100 members representing 82 different organizations that make up the Topeka Technology Leadership Forum and the Council of IT Executives (CITE), we wish to thank you for your participation in the 15th Annual Kansas City IT Symposium.  Last year 380 IT leaders attended the one day event and when you attend this year you will find the Symposium experience to be beneficial through the information you receive and the relationships you generate.

Our goal of the Symposium is to create an environment conducive to peer networking amongst IT Executives, their respective management teams and a select few vendors. Through peer-driven content addressing relevant topics this symposium proves to be very productive for the region’s IT leaders. The ability to discuss opportunities and challenges facing all of us and to capture actionable information from peers in a no-hype environment makes attending the Symposium rewarding and productive.

We’re confident that you will find the Kansas City IT Symposium to be beneficial through the information received, relationships generated, and exciting keynote line-up. The Symposium will enable you to connect with fellow executives and learn from industry leading professionals on how to drive your business, featuring:

   •Keynote speakers on leadership and cutting edge IT topics
   •Interactive breakout sessions with national and local experts
   •Ample networking opportunities with their peers from throughout the region

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium!
