Connecticut Chief Information Officer Rock Regan has been elected president of the National Association of State Chief Information Officers for the 2001-02 term, the organization announced Oct. 11.
Regan said one of his first priorities will be to oversee a forum on security and critical infrastructure protection that is scheduled for November.
Other NASCIO initiatives for the upcoming year include publication of a compendium on digital government and federal privacy laws; the unveiling of an enterprise architecture tool kit; and issuance of briefs on resource funding pools, return on investment and privacy of Social Security numbers, Regan said.
Other officers for the new term are:
*Gerry Wethington, Missouri CIO, who will serve as vice president;
*Wendy Rayner, New Jersey CIO, who will serve as secretary and treasurer;
*Aldona Valicente, who will serve as past president.
The election was conducted electronically after the NASCIO annual conference was canceled as a result of the Sept. 11 attacks.
NASCIO of Lexington, Ky., is an organization representing CIOs of the 50 states, six U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. Members include cabinet- and senior-level state officials responsible for information resource management. Other IT officials participate as associate members, and private-sector representatives may become corporate members.
