BOARD OF ADVISORS
The CIO Workshop is supported by a group of Board of Advisors comprising the ITMA representatives and other prominent IT leaders from both private and public sector organizations.
These individuals establish the focus of the workshop, pinpoint issues to address and invite visionaries and industry leaders to speak on these subjects.

The CIO Workshop was created and piloted by Accenture USA in 1986. In 1988, Accenture Singapore brought the CIO Workshop to Singapore for the first time and jointly organized it in partnership with the Information Technology Management Association (ITMA). The ITMA was previously known as the Data Processing Management Association of Singapore. After more than two decades, Accenture has not only established deep expertise and experience working with CIOs, but has also developed a long-standing relationship with the ITMA in Singapore. The CIO Workshop has since become the longest-running annual forum where CIOs share best practices and discuss prevailing IT management issues. It is the only IT forum with a 30-year heritage.
In 2000, the bar was raised when the CIO Workshop took on a dual location format. Since then, delegates have had the opportunity to travel, learn from and network with their peers from another Asian city during the second leg of the workshop. Past destinations have included Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo and, most recently, Shanghai. Today, the CIO Workshop has become the de-facto forum for CIOs of large private and public organizations in Singapore. Delegates return annually to the event to benefit from the rich content and valuable peer networking opportunities.
Information Technology Management Association (ITMA) Singapore
The Information Technology Management Association (ITMA) was established on March 28, 1998 when the Data Processing Management Association of Singapore (DPMA) renamed itself and invited the Singapore Information Management Chapter of the Singapore Computer Society (SIM) to join them in a merger of sorts between two like- minded associations. The ITMA thus becomes the sole authority to represent the IT managers in Singapore. It has inherited an impressive history created by the combination of two organizations.
