"I am excited to take part in my first New York State IT Leadership Academy. I am a strong advocate of professional development and encourage it among all our IT leaders. Personally, I always strive to challenge myself and reach beyond my comfort zone. It forces me to learn and grow my skills. I believe it helps keep a leader sharp, up-to-date, and sets a good example for everyone we lead. This year’s Academy presents a wonderful agenda to challenge your thinking, to help innovate your work, and to provide an opportunity to collaborate with your peers. I encourage you all to attend. I sincerely look forward to building new relationships and getting to know the state’s IT leadership and our business partners."  

- Margaret Miller, NYS Chief Information Officer and Director of the NYS Office of Information Technology Services.
