NEW IT Alliance – May Tech Upload
New IT News
Welcome New Member, Imaginasium
Imaginasium is our newest general level member! Thank you for joining us!
Happy May! It’s rather hard to believe that spring is in full swing, and grilling season is upon us. All too soon students will be graduating across the region, including my youngest daughter who will be heading off to UW Stevens Point in the fall. While many think of the summer as a time to take a break from learning, here at the NEW IT Alliance we’re kicking off a number of exciting initiatives this summer!
Before we start looking at where we’re headed, let’s take a quick look at what happened in April. We continue to roll out our “We Are the NEW IT” videos. Our April video featured Emily, a security specialist at Oshkosh Corp. Our May video features Trevor, a Project Manager at Bemis. Both of them share what they love about their jobs and why they like living in Northeastern Wisconsin. Emily was a huge hit on social media, and we’re looking forward to seeing how Trevor does. These videos are targeted to middle and high school students as a way to educate them about IT careers, and provide some young role models they can relate to.
Also in April, we launched our new Member Spotlight feature. Our first featured member was Cellcom. This blog series is designed to help our readers learn about the variety of companies in Northeast Wisconsin, what they do as core business, and some of the exciting things their IT departments are working on. We will be featuring one member organization a month, posting their article on our blog page, promoting it via social media, and including it here in our newsletter. We hope you enjoy learning about our members as much as we do.
