Before, during and after each presentation, chapter members have the opportunity to discuss important issues and concerns with guest speakers and colleagues from industry and government. History In 1997, a group of prominent CIOs in the Central Florida area decided to establish a non-competitive environment where CIOs could collaboratively share in knowledge and work experiences. The founding fathers included Andy Wing, Rick Sickles and Ron Maciejewski. Wing became the group’s President and initiated the recruitment process – encouraging Hugh Moore, Jim Dekle and Garrett Grainger to join as founding members to lead the new group, which was named the Central Florida CIO Council. Several years later, another member of the Council, Dave Razmussen, challenged the group to convert to an affiliate chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM) – a watershed decision in our growth. The organization officially became a SIM chapter in 2001.
