MAY 7'The National Association of State Information Resource Executives changed its name to the National Association of State Chief Information Officers today at the organization's midyear meeting in Austin, Texas.

The association's membership adopted the name change at a meeting led by Aldona Valicenti, its president. A quorum of state CIOs'26'voted for the name change, which takes effect immediately. The meeting has attracted hundreds of state officials, vendors and others.

Valicenti, who is Kentucky's CIO, said the new name better reflects the organization and its mission.

The membership also voted to change the association's corporate vehicle from nonprofit 501(c)(3) status under the U.S. tax code to 501(h)(11) status. The change will let NASCIO engage in legislative lobbying, a function not allowed for 501(c)(3) organizations.
