Notice: PISAM electronic mailing list service update
Dear PISA members,
PISA uses Yahoo! Groups as our discussion board and electronic mailing service. [PISAM] is the common group for us to distribute our messages to PISA members. Sadly, Yahoo! Groups has announced its End of Service. The Yahoo Groups website is going to shut down on December 15, 2020 and members will no longer be able to send or receive emails from Yahoo Groups. (Thanks Yahoo! Groups for providing the service in the past.)
The PISA Executive Committee has decided to change our mailing list service to Groups.io. Our valid members will receive our invitation from "email@example.com Moderators" in the coming few days. The last batch of invitations will NOT be later than 15-NOV. Please accept the invitation and join our new PISAM group.
The invitation email maybe drops into your JUNK/ SPAM folder. Please take a look, release it and try to whitelist [pisam] emails in the future.
If you still cannot receive any invitation email, please feel free to contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org after 15-NOV for checking your email alias forwarding.
Thank you for your attention.
Date: 25-26 Nov 2020 (Wed-Thur)

Even as companies grapple with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is already clear that CIOs are playing a central role in navigating the crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a human tragedy, and technology is on the front lines of this crisis. Many of the changes reshaping how we work and live – from employees working remotely to consumers shifting their shopping online – rely on technology. And because technology ties so much of every company together, CIOs have a unique view into what’s really going on and how to manage it. The most successful organizations take risks in “the turns”, those places in the enterprise journey where others slow down.
Carrying the theme of “Preparing To Win In The Turns’’, this premier annual CIO event targeting 200+ CIOs, CDOs, CISOs, C-level delegates and IT decision makers dedicates in optimizing delegates’ digital and business information technology management with a new strategic outlook and equips CIOs and CXOs with insight into how they should prepare and lead in the turns, building agility into systems, processes, and decision-making, both within their teams and among their peers.
