Board of Advisors (BoA) members believe in Iasa’s mission to establish and stabilize the profession of IT and technology architecture worldwide and support it locally. The BoA acts in an advisory and thought leader capacity for the chapter leadership team on various topics, programs, opportunities to help the chapter grow in awareness, reputation and membership.
The Board of Advisors represents the most influential and capable individuals related to a chapter, community or leadership capacity at Iasa. These are CIOs and EA thought leaders as well as academics, government, vendor and non-vendor alike.
The goal of the board of advisors is to aid the chapter(s) in developing programs that are fundamentally aligned with the needs of the profession in the surrounding community and country. They serve as both ambassadors as well as thought leaders. The leaders are not traditionally expected to contribute large numbers of hours but are more guides, mentors and thought leaders. Many BoA members come from member companies and assign working group, activist or other leadership working task to members of their own staff. Further activity is based on need, desire and availability.
Initiatives of relevance include but are not limited to:
- Knowledge/ Focus Groups
- Government Initiatives
- Tailored programs depending on local need/demand
- Academia Collaboration
The estimated time commitment for a minimum to participate in the BoA is approx. 2-5 hours a month mostly on phone calls or as a part of a BoA or executive meeting or dinner.
