The Edmonton Chapter Board of the CIO Association of Canada has elected Gurudutt Shimoga, CIO for the Landmark Group, Inc. as its new President, effectively immediately.

We bring CIOs together to share best IT leadership practices across industry silos, to amplify the voice of the CIO on issues affecting the profession, and to provide executive education and networking opportunities through a variety of events scheduled throughout the year.
