AITP Chicago’s 11th Annual “Most Effective Technology Team Award”

 A Great Sponsorship Opportunity

The Chicago Chapter of AITP (Association of Information and Technology Professionals) and its program partner, the Pan Asian American Business Council, are proud to announce the advent of their 2022 “Most Effective Information Technology Team” Award and are actively seeking sponsors.

This is a great opportunity to promote your organization over a 4+ month period of time culminating in an Awards Dinner where you can network with members of the 12 nominated teams and have your representatives seated with 3 of the nominated teams for dinner.

This award recognizes high performing technology teams that have done an outstanding job of improving the success of their companies’ business.  Teams will be selected for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.  Relative performance will be used to adjust for company size.  Judging will be done by a panel of CIOs, Directors and Senior IT Executives.

The Awards Dinner is one of the most highly attended technology leadership events each year.   John Fisher, a former CIO of the Year winner, will moderate a panel composed of representatives of the 3 winning teams.  This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of your company in the technology community and to network with senior technology professionals and members of the competing teams.
