NEW ORLEANS (PRWEB) November 01, 2017
The 6th Annual Louisiana IT Symposium is returning to New Orleans, Louisiana at the Sheraton New Orleans on November 8, 2017. This is a one-day, executive level event designed for CIOs and their management teams. There will be nearly 150 CIOs, VPs, Directors and Managers present at this year’s Louisiana IT Symposium.
We are honored to have a presentation by Steve Gleason and Team Gleason. Paul Varisco, Team Gleason’s Executive Director and Steve’s father-in-law, will open the session with an update on the Foundation and it’s efforts.
Following Paul will be a highlight of the event with an address by Steve Gleason. Steve will discuss the important role that technology has played in his life; not only has it extended his capability to interact, but it has also helped his ability to continue the work and life that has become his life’s purpose. You won’t want to miss this inspiring message.
Once again, the Louisiana IT Symposium will donate $100 of every paid registration fee towards Louisiana IT Symposium related charitable causes. This year’s funds will support the Team Gleason and Head for the Cure.
In 2011, Steve was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), considered a terminal neuro- muscular disease. Steve is determined to inspire others by continuing to pursue life adventures despite his diagnosis, and has challenged the worlds of technology and science to identify their most promising developments toward new treatments and a cure.
Steve and his friends and family started Team Gleason to generate public awareness for ALS, raise funding to empower those with ALS to live a rewarding life, and ultimately find a cure. You can find out more about Team Gleason by visiting, http://www.teamgleason.org.
