There is no better way than knowledge sharing and networking to build business opportunities and take advantages from the market: these are our pillars to boost our growth! CIO Club Italia is the first Italian Association for C-levels and Managers working into the IT segment: thanks to live events, webinars and training opportunities our members are constantly on the verge of the last technology trends.

Thanks to a 15 months massive activity, CIO CLUB ITALIA becomes part of “Repubblica Digitale”, the Italian national strategic initiative promoted by the Department for digital transformation of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers to spread the digital inclusion and transformation of the entire Italian Country.

Such a great achievement has been possible mainly thanks to a skilled and focused board able to introduce initiatives, solutions and innovations meaningful for the CIOs and their company's business.

The association plans meetings at different levels each year:

  • Meetings with producers of innovative technologies and solutions
  • Training courses for members and non-members
  • Networking to finalize partnerships
  • Manufacturers plants visits
  • Meetups with technology "gurus"
  • Meetings with technology startups
  • Survey to target club members' interests and expectations
  • Updates via weekly newsletters and talk shows.

Our program

The guide lines
Article 41 of the Italian Constitution provides that no economic enterprise, public or private, may be carried out contrary to social utility or in such a way as to harm health, the environment, security, freedom or human dignity.

Therefore, the CIO Club Italia declares that its social purpose consists in encouraging the spread of digitalization as a common enabling tool for innovation, and intends to contribute with its activities to fill economic and gender inequalities in our work sector and, above all, to spend itself on converting poor market professionalism into others suitable for adapting to change.

With this burden of responsibility, the first board of directors of the CIO Club Italia ETS, and the undersigned Imma Orilio as President, we will work over the next 4 years to implement the program that includes:

1) the membership of all members
2) the creation of an annual report that will be published together with the financial statements, testifying to the activities carried out and the results obtained
3) the regulation of the elective model and the establishment of the first congressional assembly.
The organization chart
The organization chart includes an administrative and a scientific structure.

The administrative one regulates the management of the Association in compliance with the regulatory dictation, the scientific one has consultative power with the presidency and supports it for the harmonization of communication, training and information contents with the themes of the program and the objectives of the association.
The details
The program, proposed by the president and launched by the board of directors, includes a series of projects, such as, for example, the establishment of Remuneration Observatory, with the aim of mapping regional and sectoral variations, positioning on the labor market, any wage inequalities between genders, levels of experience or other variables, thus promoting equal pay, based on updated and reliable data that can be used by the professionals themselves during wage negotiations with employers.

The commitment will be mainly aimed at analyzing experience, training and level of education, and salaries, to identify opportunities for career development and suggest possible paths for professional growth.

Also from a business point of view, this work will be useful, suggesting appropriate strategies to attract and retain talent, providing benchmarks that guarantee competitive offers.

Another point of great commitment will be the establishment of Technical Tables on the four most pressing issues of the technological scenario, especially in the light of the PNRR: Cybersecurity, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing.

Clearly, a program so full of ideas and so demanding will involve all the members who want to make themselves available to participate in each of the technical tables or in any other task provided for by the organization chart.

They will be published through the weekly newsletter and on the website of the association of calls for specific applications and will also be published through posts on our social channels to ensure that more and more professionals can be interested in the work of the association.

Relations with national and international universities and research institutions will be fundamental and we will also be open to the participation from abroad of CIO and, in general, other professionals in the IT sector.
Our goal is to be able to compare ourselves with our counterparts in other countries too for a fruitful exchange of experiences and best practices.
