CIO UK has now launched CIO Plus, a community of business technology leaders which provides members with exclusive benefits including 11 issues of CIO magazine, access to the CIO magazine smartphone and tablet app and premium online content. In addition members will receive priority invitations to CIO events including the CIO Summit as well as a new programme of CIO Plus events, the first of which is an evening discussing the future of the CIO role and digital disruption with Rob Fraser, the former IT director at retail giant J Sainsbury's.

Community is the ethos behind every decision I make as Editor in Chief of CIO UK and the creation of CIO Plus was driven by my desire to improve the portfolio of services we offer our loyal readers. Over the last seven years my team and I have created the CIO Summit and CIO 100 to celebrate and showcase the wealth of talent that exists among the CIO community in the UK. This same team is constantly working to enhance its digital and print products to ensure they add value to you and your career.

With the launch of CIO Plus my aim is not only to provide you with exclusive content but to also create a unique opportunity for peers to meet, debate and discuss key business technology leadership topics with our forum of industry leading experts.

To join CIO Plus and to continue to receive our magazine, access unique online content and attend our events, there is a membership fee of £199.99 per annum. I sincerely believe this will offer you increased value in your role as a CIO and look forward to welcoming you to this prestigious community.
