CIPS
What value has your involvement with CIPS provided? In my early career, I sat next to a fellow DPMA member, who told me to get involved, as I would get out what I put into any organization. I continue to believe this to be true, for professional and personal improvement. I have an extensive network of contacts and colleagues, built up over many years. Attendance at CIPS events and active participation as a member and board volunteer continue to enhance and develop my contacts, as well as staying current in the ever-changing field of IT.
