Message From the Chair: Mary Ellen Bradley

This year has been a busy and productive one for the IPMA. We have focused on our priorities which are to: further the professionalism of the state information technology community; provide networking opportunities for state information technology managers; provide professional development opportunities for the state IT community; provide a forum to showcase state of the art technology; and feature discussion of IT issues and directions.

In March 2001 the new library at Saint Martin's and the new student union at South Puget Sound Community College were opened. The IPMA made pledges totaling $50,000 to support these new buildings. The pledges to both institutions were for $5,000 each year for five years. Our current commitment will continue through 2002 and illustrates our support for information technology education.

The IRS approved our designation as a tax exempt entity in March 2001 retroactive to May 1989. This change will enable the IPMA to provide more opportunities for the IT community.

We also revitalized our Professional Development Committee. Three seminars were provided and included: "Disaster Preparedness - Lessons Learned from the Nisqually earthquake", "No Browser Required: Rich User Interfaces in a Web World" and "Project Management Practices".

The Forum, "Seamless Services Anytime, Anywhere", in May and the Executive Seminar in September continued to assist the state and local government information technology population. Both of these events were well attended this year.

Communications was substantially enhanced this year with an expansion of the listserv list. We also continued to expand use of our web site including implementing on-line event registration for IPMA's increasingly popular professional development events.

This year also brought some changes in the nomination and election process for Board members. These changes were designed to make the nomination process more open to Association members.

I have enjoyed my year as chair of the IPMA and I look forward to continuing to serve on the board in the next year.

Committee Reports

Business Planning

Committee Chair:

Doug Tanabe (360-664-6360)

Purpose:

The purpose of the Business Planning Committee is to build and foster the long-term business interests of the Association in order to provide the IPMA every possible advantage to pursue its mission.

Accomplishments for 2001:

  • The IPMA applied for and was approved as a nonprofit organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
  • In 1998, IPMA’s fostered closer links with St. Martin’s College and South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC). Through two pledges totaling $50,000, IPMA was able to support the installation of an Information Services desk in the new St. Martin’s Library and support Local Area Network (LAN) and work station installations for the Associated Students of SPSCC in their new student union building. These investments in the future of our local educational institutions serve to illustrate IPMA’s strong continuing commitment to support our community. The pledges to both institutions were for $5,000 each year for five years. To date, $20,000 has been given to each school. Saint Martin's new library and SPSCC's new student union building were opened in March 2001.

Objectives for 2002:

For the next year, Business Planning Committee has the following objectives:

  • Closely monitor and report on the Merrill Lynch Investment Program. Our investment strategy will be reviewed for additional investments during 2002.
  • Pursue other opportunities for providing IPMA sponsored events and supporting the information technology profession within Washington State Government.
  • Negotiate and manage contracts with private vendors to provide services for IPMA sponsored events.
  • Provide the fifth and final $5,000 contributions pledged to St. Martin’s College and South Puget Sound Community College.
  • Consider opportunities for supporting capital improvement programs that advance information technology in State Government beyond 2002.

Forum

Committee Co-Chairs:

Dennis Laine (360-456-8898) and Mike McVicker (360-902-3129)

Purpose:

Forum is an annual information technology seminar and trade show that has been held in Olympia since 1979. Forum continues to be an effective opportunity for vendors to demonstrate their products, for speakers to share their expertise and knowledge, and for state employees and others to attend free seminars and product demonstrations and to network. It is important to note that Forum is one of the premier technology shows in the Pacific Northwest and the largest to focus solely on the Public Sector.

Accomplishments for 2001:

For the second consecutive year Forum was held at the Saint Martin's College Pavilion in May. Improvements were made over the first year including carpeting the entire pavilion floor and having a single vendor supply telecommunications services to the show floor. Forum 2001 was extremely successful and received high praise from participating vendors and attendees. There were 62 vendor booths and approximately 975 attendees. Having 62 vendor booths in one large room was well received. The Worthington Center facility provided great flexibility for setting up conference rooms and breakout rooms. The Forum 2001 theme of "Seamless Services; Anytime, Anywhere" was very timely and popular.

Based upon feedback from Forum 2000, the Executive Breakfast was changed to an Executive Luncheon, held the day before Forum. Luncheon speaker Secretary of State Sam Reed's presentation on the fate of the state blanket primary election process was well received by approximately 115 attendees.

Objectives for 2002:

The theme for Forum 2002 will be "Silver Anniversary FORUM, 25 years of Service to the State". Twenty-two corporate sponsors have been signed up for this fiscal year. Vendor booth sales will start in January 2002. Keynote speakers have been approached and ideas for the breakout sessions have been identified.

The following objectives have been endorsed for Forum 2002:

  • Keep Forum in the Olympia area utilizing the May Tuesday-Wednesday format.
  • Manage Forum so that it remains cost effective, realizes at least a 10% profit and meets or exceeds the expectations of attendees and participating vendors;
  • Coordinate with St. Martin’s staff to improve on the use of the Pavilion.
  • Increase attendance through advertising and marketing to ensure that all public sector information technology employees in the South Sound area are aware of Forum and the benefits of attending Forum.
  • Continue the use of IPMA’s web site to recruit vendors and to distribute information to participating vendors and attendees.
  • Continue the Executive Luncheon on the Monday before Forum and schedule it as annual event at the Worthington Center.

Communications

Committee Co-Chairs:

Bob Monn (360-407-6585) and Shelagh Taylor (360-902-5970)

Purpose:

The Communications Committee provides IPMA members with information about actions taken by the Board of Directors, special events, seminars, other committee activities, and other items of interest. The Committee maintains the IPMA Internet web site as a means of interacting with IPMA members, sponsors, and others interested in IPMA activities. The Committee publishes the monthly newsletter and maintains the IPMA listserv.

The Communications Committee also is responsible for promoting membership in the IPMA and maintaining the membership roster.

  • Published IPMA's 2000 annual report.
  • Maintained the IPMA membership database; new members are added via a web form and updates and deletions are made manually.
  • Administered the IPMA listserv mailing list. This mailing list was expanded in 2001 through the addition of available e-mail addresses for Forum 2001 attendees.
  • Maintained the IPMA web site including:
    • Updates of event calendar as needed.
    • Web support for Forum 2001, Executive Seminar 2001 (including on-line event registration), and professional development events (including on-line event registration).
    • Web support for electronic voting in annual election of Board members.
    • Completion of a redesign of the IPMA web site to enhance usability and provide greater focus on IPMA's premier annual events.
    • Preparation of a preliminary feasibility study for electronic payments.
  • Established an IPMA records archive including past issues of IPMA News.

Objectives for 2002:

  • Continue web publication of the monthly newsletter; add periodic feature highlighting past IPMA activities to celebrate IPMA's history of contributions to the IT community.
  • Publish the 2001 IPMA Annual Report.
  • Work with other IPMA committees to support IPMA events; provide marketing communications for these events and support on-line event registration.
  • Support the annual on-line election process for Board members.

Professional Development

Committee Chair:

Sheryl Hall and Dennis Jones

Purpose:

The purpose of the Professional Development Committee is to provide educational and networking programs for the membership and the IT community. The Committee works with IT vendors and state agencies to provide programs at no cost or minimal cost to the IT community. The Committee also may sponsor selected formal training events to be provided on a fee basis.

Accomplishments for 2001:

The Professional Development Committee provided three seminars during 2001. The 2001 program was as follows:

Date

Topic

Presenter

June 28, 2001 Disaster Preparedness DIS, GA, DRS, OFM
Cisco, Qwest

(Two sessions were held to accommodate demand.)

Project Management Practices Glenn Briskin, Sierra Designs
Joan Waldrop, PMI (morning)
Betty Boushey, PMI (afternoon)
Garin Pangburn, CPTS
Diane Vasarkovy

Seminar participants have rated the sessions very highly and wish them to be continued. Feedback for improvements focused on the comfort of the facility (hard chairs, tight quarters, too hot, too cold).

Objectives for 2002:

The Professional Development Committee has the following objectives for 2002:

  • Seven seminars in the current half day format are planned as follows:

Date

Topic

Presenter

Jan. 23, 2002 "I Can't See the Forest through the Trees" -- Windows 2000 Multi-Agency Single Forest Netdesk
DIS, GA, OFM, DOP
Feb. 20, 2002 Project Management - A Review of Methodologies (To be announced)
Mar. 20, 2002 Mainframe Extensions (Web, Client/Server, other) Milestone Technology
DIS Digital Government Applications Academy
Apr. 17, 2002 Building a Security Program (To be announced)
June 2002 (To be announced) (To be announced)
August 2002 (To be announced) (To be announced)
October 2002 (To be announced) (To be announced)
  • Evaluate alternative facilities. The committee will evaluate the costs and benefits of holding seminars at a location other than Saint Martin's. The primary objective would be to have more comfortable seating and better temperature control.
  • Evaluate and implement practices that will result in fewer "no-shows". We have aimed for 50 participants per seminar, we have usually registered over 55 and have had 40 - 45 actually attend. We would like to come closer to the target of 50 attendees.
  • Evaluate the feasibility and value of a "for-fee" seminar that would utilize a paid presenter and perhaps be of longer duration.
