The National Association of State Chief Information Officers has announced a new executive leadership lineup for the new program year.

North Carolina CIO and Secretary of Technology James Weaver will serve as president; Texas CIO and Executive Director Amanda Crawford will serve as vice president; and Arizona CIO J.R. Sloan will serve as secretary and treasurer.

New Jersey Chief Technology Officer Chris Rein will join NASCIO’s Executive Committee as a director. Rein joins the association’s other committee directors, which includes Indiana CIO Tracy Barnes; Ohio CIO and Assistant Director Katrina Flory; Utah CIO Alan Fuller; New Hampshire CIO and Commissioner Denis Goulet; Georgia CIO Shawnzia Thomas; Minnesota CIO and Commissioner Tarek Tomes; and Wisconsin CIO Trina Zanow.

Those selected for the new program year’s executive leadership roles bring extensive IT experience. Weaver took over for North Carolina IT in 2021, having previously served the states of Washington and Pennsylvania. Crawford started as Texas CIO in 2020 after a more than 20-year career working for Texas state government. Sloan was named CIO of Arizona in 2020 after serving the state in an interim CIO role since 2019.

This NASCIO announcement closely follows the association’s annual conference last week in Minneapolis, Minn. At this event, CIOs explored the future of IT, current trends and financial models. Weaver’s role was first announced last week at the conference. He takes over the role from Tennessee CIO Stephanie Dedmon.
