CIOCAN is a not-for-profit community of CIOs and IT leaders whose mission is to facilitate networking, sharing of best practices and executive development, and to collaborate on issues facing CIOs/IT Executives. CIOCAN’s volunteer national board sets overall policy and direction for the Association, runs the national e-seminars, leads advocacy initiatives, and provides chapter support in marketing, public affairs, member relations and development.
Each chapter elects its own president and board of directors, some of whom take on volunteer portfolios such as marketing and program development. The national board includes chapter presidents as well as representatives from other Canadian regions. Funding is through membership fees and sponsorship.
