Governance Structure

Chair and Vice Chair– Members of ITEC elected by majority vote to serve a six (6) month term with Vice Chair automatically taking the Chair position after his/her term.  Thus, only a Vice Chair will be elected every six (6) months.  The Chair is the primary contact for all outside groups.  Both Chair and Vice Chair bear primary responsibility for the following:

  • Organizing monthly meeting agenda
  • Inviting guests and coordinating logistics
  • Facilitating group discussions
  • Calling votes in or outside of meetings
  • Organizing informal social events
  • Providing follow-up feedback to presenters, when appropriate

Only ITEC as a whole has the ability to make decisions.  The Chair and Vice Chair facilitate that process.

CIO Advisory Committee– A three-person group, confirmed by the membership, which meets monthly with the CIO to discuss issues covered during ITEC meetings and other matters of mutual concern. The Chair and Vice Chair may not serve on this committee during their terms.  Committee members report back to ITEC on CIO’s top priorities at next regularly scheduled ITEC meeting.

CISO Advisory Committee – A three-person group, confirmed by the membership, which meets monthly with the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) on information security matters on behalf of ITEC.  The Chair and Vice Chair may not serve on this committee during their terms.  Committee members report back to ITEC on CISO’s top priorities at next regularly scheduled ITEC meeting.
