The goal of this monthly event is to bring the One IT community together regularly to share information, hear an informal update from CIO Jenn Stringer, participate in Q&A, learn about the progress being made on priorities outlined in our strategic plan, and hopefully have some fun and learn from each other. These meetings will be held on the second Thursday of the month. We will collect questions ahead of time and also through chat during the meeting.
