Reflecting the expanded focus of the MEMA Information Services Council (MIS) beyond information services and technology roles, the group has been renamed the MEMA Technology Council (MTC).
According to current MTC chairman Ray Nicholas, the move is in accordance with MEMA’s mission to provide its members with the best practices focusing on current and emerging technology to reduce costs and improve efficiencies. As a result, the MTC now includes such related topics as business processes, business intelligence, forecasting, and broader data management areas.
“In today’s market, technology is integrated with so many operations areas that the MTC needs to grow beyond its previous focus on IT,” says Nicholas. “The MTC board anticipates reaching new companies and new employees within MEMA member companies with the expanded focus.”
