    “This is a group of trusted peers and advisors. When trying to sell your ideas to others within your institution, being able to say what your peers are doing is very helpful. If you can bring CUCCIO out as an example – this is what I think, and this is what my peers are doing – that’s a big one.”

    "I gain value from CUCCIO in three ways: cross-Canada communications and sharing; the benefits of a common voice for IT in higher education; and collaboration through initiatives like the Canadian Access Federation. CUCCIO provides a network I can depend on."

    “It’s hard to put a dollar value on the value CUCCIO brings, but the return on investment has been way beyond the overhead. Being able to interact with and gain insights from this community is huge. It’s so beneficial to be able to ask questions and get very healthy responses that really help move things forward.”

    “CUCCIO serves two key roles. It is the collective voice for Canadian university CIOs – it gives us more influence with key parties like Industry Canada, CANARIE and Compute Canada. It also provides a comprehensive listening mechanism – I can hear what 49 other CIOs are doing. Fifty brains are better than one. It allows me to do my job better.”

    “The sharing of ideas and experiences with colleagues dealing with similar issues across the country enables me to respond promptly and proactively to things that would take months to investigate in isolation. It also facilitates an invaluable learning and professional growth opportunity for our staff.”
