Join SearchCIO Wednesday, Dec. 18, on Twitter to discuss your intentions for IT in the new year. Our site editors and writers will be joined by expert contributor Harvey Koeppel, president of Pictographics Inc., a management and technology advisory and consulting services firm, and a former CIO himself. Bring your IT resolutions, no matter how pie in the sky, and let's talk about how to make them a reality.

During the event, reply to questions posed by SearchCIO, engage with your fellow Twitter users, or simply observe the conversation under the #CIOChat hashtag.

All the details:

Date: Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013

Time: 3 p.m. EST

Host: @searchCIO

Hashtag: Use and follow #CIOChat (additional hashtags include #ITregrets, #ITresolutions)

Before logging on, read these additional tips to prepare, whether this is your first or 500th tweet jam:

  • Your initial #CIOChat tweet should be introductory, including your name, title and organization.
  • @SearchCIO will ask a series of questions to followers between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Please preface with A1 (Answer 1), A2 or A3, etc., then include "#CIOChat." Each question will align with the regrets and resolutions theme.
  • Remember that Twitter only allows 140 characters per tweet. We welcome you to tweet multiple responses to each question.
  • Take this opportunity to network and connect with Twitter users who share the same perspective on the topic at hand. Retweet (RT) responses you agree with, and reply to those you don't.

Please direct questions, RSVPs or other concerns to Emily McLaughlin, emclaughlin@techtarget.com. See you on Twitter!
