The CIO Association Canada (CIOCAN) has revealed the acquisition of its 400th member this week, with the group citing a 28% growth in its membership over the previous 16 months.

The organisation is a non-profit community of CIOs, IT leaders and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), that aim to share, network and collaborate in order to facilitate industry innovation.

“Even though we have passed four hundred members we’re still growing,” said Humza Teherany, President of CIOCAN. “We attribute this to key strategies such as the addition of the CISO division, the 2017 Peer Forum that was absolutely fantastic, and we’re on our way to planning our 2018 event.”

“Our Associate members continue to grow, and we’ve had great support partnership from our vendor community across Canada,” Teherany continued. “We are now on a quest for 500 members.”

Currently, the association that aims to lead national and personal business disruption collectively holds $2bn of spending power.

CIOCAN has also helped to establish an Advisory Board under the Telus Thought Leadership agreement, with the aim of developing a community of CIO’s who discuss common issues, trends and challenges faced by CIOs.
