We look forward to welcoming the annual MOR conference to Indianapolis! For those unfamiliar with this opportunity, MOR Associates and its leader Brian McDonald direct the IT Leaders Program that IU colleagues have participated in since 2007, both with CIC schools and on-site at IU. They have hosted an annual conference since 2008, sometimes in Chicago and sometimes virtually. We hosted an IU site for last year’s virtual conference to which roughly 80 participants from across IU contributed thoughts and energy.
The conferences are always highly informative and interactive—view the online agenda via the link below (or here). If you are interested in attending, we have a group code that allows you to register without paying upfront: 1503. UITS will be billed for the total fee for IU participation under this code, and we will internally bill the account number you provide for your $975 registration.

Next Reading Group
The ITLC is pleased to announce a new book reading group, led by John Gosney. The next book will be Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson. Considered the definitive biography of Jobs, the reading group will explore IT leadership (and sometimes, the lack thereof…!) through his unique and fascinating life story. Join us to learn more about the undeniable impact Jobs had on IT /the larger cultural landscape, as well as the real meaning of the “reality distortion field”, arguably his most controversial leadership technique.
If you’re interested in joining the discussion, please sign-up here before COB Tuesday, 2/24. The first meeting of the group will be Tuesday, March 3 from 11:00 – 12:00 EDT (video bridge will be available), and will meet every week through Tuesday, May 12. Note: given the length of the Issacson book, specific chapters will be selected for study/discussion.
More information on the next TED Talks discussion, mentorships, workshops, and other opportunities will be shared in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned!

ITLC has a Charter
The ITLC has decided to put together a charter document to more thoroughly explain what the ITLC is, what the board does, and how transitions on and off the board happen. We hope this helps those of you wanting to get involved understand the process, and we also hope it inspires some of you to help us out in some capacity. We are serious about taking leadership in IT to the next level and we want to provide the best opportunities we can at IU.
ITLC Charter Document
If you have any questions, contact anyone from the ITLC Board (phone, email, or in-person).
