Membership Categories and Privileges

You are here:

Membership Types (by role)

CIO Index is an ecosystem designed for the CIO. Consequently, we recognize five membership categories based upon professional roles, each with its unique journey and the requirement that places on us:

End Users of TechnologySolution Providers to IT OrganizationAcademic and Research
CIO
The head of the technology organization
Partners
Independent providers of technology products
and services to the IT Organization
Academic Partners
Professors, researchers, and others who teach and explore in an academic, not-for-profit setting.
Aspiring CIO
Members of the CIO’s cabinet aka direct reports
IT Members
others in the IT Organization not directly reporting to the CIO

Membership Types (by payment)

We recognize that not all our members are ready to make a monetary commitment so we have two membership categories based upon payment:

Non-payingPaying
Explorers
Non paying members who want to dip their toe but are not ready to take the plunge
Subscribers
Paying members who are full on ready to get the max out of their dues

Our membership is designed to maximize value to each of these categories. However, access, privileges and consequently, dues are different for each.

Social Objects

CIO Index recognizes that our members interact with each other for a reason. We refer to these as social objects. Currently, we offer the following social objects in the CIO Community:

  • CIO Directory
  • CIO Groups
  • CIO Events
  • CIO Toolkit
  • CIO Desk Reference
  • CIO Training
  • CIO Minute

Membership Privileges

Members can have two different types of privileges on the CIO Portal:

  • Read: Read privileges allow a member to view a social object.
  • Edit:  Add/Update/Delete/List/Send privileges on social objects. (Edit privileges on a directory entitle the holder to be listed on it. and on messages send.)
