Role of the Executive Committee

The primary role of the Executive Committee is to support the Chief Information Officers Advisory Council (CIO Council) chair and chair-elect in advising the USG Vice Chancellor/CIO.

The Executive Committee is composed of the past Chair, current Chair, Chair-elect, Secretary, Vice Chancellor/CIO (ex officio), and the Chairs of each of the subcommittees. In the event a particular sector of USG institutions (research universities, regional universities, state universities, state colleges, and two-year colleges) is not represented, additional representatives shall be nominated by each unrepresented group for one year of service on the Executive Committee.

Members of the Executive Committee participate in monthly teleconferences for CIO Advisory Council business, and serve as the default IT Governance and Policy committee.
