At special events such as the Annual Trends in IT Panel, the Annual Women Executive Dinner, monthly dinner meetings, and Dutch luncheons, members establish invaluable professional and social contacts and discuss topics of interest that promote professional development.

Additionally, its members come from a wide range of companies of all sizes, products, services, markets, and information environments.
