Talking about the CIO Klub Pune Chapter's objectives, Daryanani says, "We want to provide a common platform to all the CIOs across Maharashtra, where they can raise their voices and concerns. The CIO Klub Pune Chapter will also help us in having interactions with service providers and vendors, which can further help in improving services by communicating expectations." He adds, "There are other tier II companies which are generally not selected by the CIO due to apprehensions. We will test and certify such companies so that CIOs have wider options."
As part of CIO Klub Pune Chapter's annual agenda, the association plans to come up with nine sponsored events during 2010. Council meetings will be held on a fortnightly basis, and the annual fees will be Rs 1300. "Initially, CIO Klub Pune will have fortnightly meetings, as the group is new and many things have to be planned. Once we are settled, we will have monthly meetings. Innovative measures will also be planned in order to retain attendance during these meetings," informs Daryanani. After Pune, the CIO Klub plans to open Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Chennai and Hyderabad Chapters by the end of 2010.
