MOR Associates is very pleased to announce the 2013 IT Leaders Conference in Chicago on June 19-21. The theme of this year’s conference is “The Leadership Challenge of Disruptive Change.” We will cover changes that are already evident in higher education, changes that IT will need to make in response, and the work on self you can do in order to maximize your effectiveness and be the leader you need to be.
This is an excellent opportunity for you to step back from the day-to-day and get “up on the balcony.” You will hear terrific thought leaders such as Israel Ruiz, Executive Vice President at MIT, and Bill Clebsch, Associate Vice President for IT Services at Stanford. You will also confer with your colleagues from across the great IT Leaders network.
We all agree leadership isn’t a solo act. It is clear that you cannot bring about change when there is only one voice in the organization. So, we are encouraging you to bring collleagues from your university with you, and we have priced the conference in a way that makes it attractive to get your colleagues to attend. If you and five or more additional participants from your school sign up by April 19, the cost is discounted to $950 per person. This fee covers the conference as well as the welcoming dinner on Wednesday evening.
