The Role of the C-Suite in Technology

The Role of the C-Suite in Technology Planning and Implementation | I had the honor of moderating a panel at this week’s annual conference of the American Society of Association Executives in Detroit, MI. The panel was titled, “The Role of the C-Suite in Technology” and featured 3 CEOs and 2 CIOs.

Each panelist described his/her organization: mission, staff size, revenue, most important programs and key technologies. Every organization had a diverse mix of technologies that included an AMS (association management software), CMS (content management system), accounting, and sometimes LMS (learning management system).

The key takeaways from the session?

Many thanks to Barry Pilson, my co-moderator from TESOL International Association. The fantastic panelists were:

Joanna, thank you for inviting us to present at this session. As a new CEO, back in 2010, I gradually came to realize how important technology is in association management. As the saying goes, leadership matters and, I would add, leadership matters in association technology. The extent of a CEO’s involvement depends upon the size of the organization, the resources at hand, and the CEO’s knowledge, but regardless of these variables, leaders cannot afford to ignore a key driver of the core functions provided by their organizations.
