"The first annual Technology Leadership Conference was an unqualified success! The attendance was greater than anticipated and the quality of presentations rivaled what might be heard at national conferences. We are excited to be able to offer this learning opportunity to our communities. I am particularly pleased with the energy, excitement and professionalism displayed by our OTS staff in preparing for and delivering this wonderful conference."-Dr. Carol J. Spencer, President of SJC

More than 120 industry leaders throughout the area gathered recently to attend the first ever San Juan College Technology Leadership Conference.

The Office of Technology Services hosted the event that appealed to a wide audience ranging from business and tribal leaders to governmental and educational professionals. Keynote speakers provided information on topics including overcoming the status quo in the implementation of new technology; 10 questions to ask about technology; and how your information security impacts U.S. national security.

Along with keynote speakers, several companies were instrumental in supporting and assisting with the event. These included: Brainstorm Networks; Cisco Systems; Intel; SunGard Collegis, Inc.; Gateway; Datatel and Hitachi.

Shah Ardalan, San Juan College chief information officer, says he is looking forward to providing a similar conference next year. “We truly appreciate our sponsors for helping us bring the information to technology professionals. As technology continues to advance at an extremely fast pace, we want to offer this conference as a resource that will enhance their technology usage and capabilities.”
