Join the IT Corporate Roundtable

This is the place...for Corporate/Government IT Collaboration

Congratulations on your decision to apply for membership to The NYS Forum's IT Corporate Roundtable (ITCR). The annual corporate membership fee is made upon entry of an IT corporation as a member of the IT Corporate Roundtable. The membership fees are due on October 1st of each year which is consistent with The NYS Forum's program year. Corporations joining during the period October through March shall pay for the full year. Corporations joining in April through September shall pay a pro-rated amount for the remainder of the year. If renewal fees are not received within three (3) months of the annual due date (October 1), the Corporation will lose public standing as a member of the IT Corporate Roundtable and lose the benefits of membership (discounts on The NYS Forum events, etc.). The annual membership levels are as follows:

  • Large Corporation - shall be charged an annual membership fee of $5,000 per year.
  • Minority or Woman Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) NYS Certified - corporations certified as woman or minority owned businesses shall be charged an annual membership fee of $3,000 per year.
  • Small Business NYS Certified - corporations meeting the state criteria for small business as defined in New York State Finance Law, Article XI.8 (must be resident in the state, independently owned and operated, not dominant in its field and employs less than one hundred persons) shall be charged an annual membership fee of $2,000.

What makes us unique?

The IT Corporate Roundtable is a unique forum where the best of government and IT corporate minds are brought to bear on the persistent and challenging problems of state and local government IT leadership and staff. It is a groundbreaking, national model of productive partnership industry. Membership grew by nearly 50% in 2004 and now includes the biggest names in IT. Members say the "win-win" partnership benefits everyone. For a current list of corporate members visit: www.nysforum.org and click on "IT Corporate Roundtable."

Members Only Benefits

Corporate membership in The NYS Forum is encouraged to provide meaningful interaction in a neutral setting between New York state and local CIO's, IT directors and their staff, and members of the IT corporate community. Mutual benefit is derived from this interaction, whereby:

  • Corporate/public sector relationships are established;
  • Public sector IT leadership and staff learn what the future holds as corporate R&D members provide "windows into the future of IT;"
  • Public sector IT leadership and staff learn about industry concerns, hurdles and opportunities;
  • IT corporate representatives learn of state and local IT needs and how they can best work together to fulfill them;
  • Business partners share information and collaborate on critical issues.

We respectfully remind all members that although The NYS Forum was founded for the exchange of information among public sector IT leaders and their staffs, IT corporate representatives are invited to actively participate in The NYS Forum meetings and committees.
