Midlands Executive IT Forum Promotes Thought Leadership in IT Community

Columbia, SC (March 2017) The Midlands Executive IT Forum (MEITF) is designed to promote knowledge sharing and discussion in the technology industry. Each meeting features a technical expert in a variety of topics from disaster recovery to compliance. Past events have featured experts on the legal implications of encryption, security and hackers, and PCI compliance. The forum is always aimed at discussing issues that impact companies and providing insight and thought leadership to local technology leaders at the executive level. Guests are invited to enjoy cocktails and hor d’oeuvres while they listen to the speaker and participate in the Q&A session that follows the presentation.

The first meeting of 2017 will be held in March. It will feature Elizabeth Gartner, an expert in human capital and workforce management, who will discuss the changing way IT companies must think of their employees and signature research conducted at Allegis Global Solutions and the Human Capital Institute. All meetings are held in Columbia and sponsored by Immedion and SoftwareONE. For an invitation, please contact Justin Fianchino, Immedion’s Columbia site Inside Sales Representative, at
