Why

Wouldn't it be nice to have other local government resources that you can contact if you encounter a particularly difficult techno-roadblock?  You can start building your local IT support network at GIANTS.  We've all been there. We can help each other.

During GIANTS, you will also have time to visit vendors that you may be considering for that next big IT project.  After you meet with them, some of their references might be right in the room with you.  You can get real-time reference checks from other GMIS Illinois members and see how their implementation went.  You can also discover new vendors and hear their success stories.
