Most Effective Technology Team Award

The Team Awards have been a great way to recognize the hard work of the staffs that makes a CIO, Director or other Technology Executive successful.

Since 2008, the “Team Awards” have been presented annually by AITP Chicago and PAABC and recognize high performing teams that have done an outstanding job of improving the success of their companies’ business.   Teams will be selected for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.  Relative performance will be used to adjust for company size.  This is a serious award.  Judging will be done by a panel of CIOs, Directors and Senior IT Executives.

Congratulations to all of the organizations and their high performing teams that have made it to the Judging Phase!
