About the Event

Technically Speaking is the new Division of Information Technology speaking series. At the request of the vice president and CIO, Dee Childs, the Division of IT has rebranded IT Forum into Technically Speaking to encourage professional development, and share even more intriguing content and hear from relevant speakers.

Technically Speaking events offer expert presentations on a variety of important information technology topics. Speakers vary from Texas A&M University leaders to nationally recognized leaders outside of the University.

You will now receive continuing education credits for attending these events. When attending the event, sign in at the attendance table.
