Ms. Kathy Tamer, VP & CIO of United Space Alliance (USA) and an UHCL Distinguished Alumni, will be the keynote speaker of itSMF Houston Special Event on August 31, 2010: http://hou.itsmfusa.org/. The event is free for those who register early.
itSMF, or Information Technology Service Management Forum, organized this special event to focus on the international ITSM standards, ISO 20000 and ISO 27002.
This event is especially suitable for CIS and CS students. Although you may not be familiar with the ITSM standards, it is an excellent opportunity to expose yourself to IT management and the working environment. (USA has the largest IT operation in the Clear Lake area.) Joining professional organizations and their activities is crucial for your professional development and I encourage our students not to miss this opportunity.
