The National Association of State CIOs is looking for a new executive director. Elizabeth VanMeter today announced she is stepping down after six years of leading the organization that represents technology chiefs.
VanMeter, who said she is leaving to spend more time with her family, helped build NASCIO's relationship with the federal government as well as with other state and local government associations.
She organized the annual fly-in to Washington for state CIOs to meet with one another and federal IT executives. VanMeter also extended the organization's reach into areas such as IT security, interoperability with federal agencies and enterprise architecture.
'Elizabeth's energy and skill have been instrumental to NASCIO's growth and evolution as an organization,' said Gerry Wethington, Missouri CIO and NASCIO's president. 'Through her leadership, NASCIO is well established and widely recognized as the premier forum for government CIOs.'
NASCIO wants to hire a new director by April.
