Updated SHARE Mission and Logo Provides Focus

In May 2014, the SHARE Board of Directors voted to update the SHARE Mission and Vision. The newly incorporated mission statement is “SHARE is an independent, volunteer-run information technology association that provides education, professional networking and industry influence.”

This change simplifies and focuses our user group around its three key areas of value: Educate, Network, Influence. SHARE has always provided current information and updates on the latest technology and trends in the industry while also connecting our community with networking opportunities as well as ways to work together and influence change in enterprise IT.

By simplifying our mission, we have made it easier for our volunteer team and partners to keep these three tenets at the forefront as they design and develop opportunities for our Member organizations. While we have always delivered education, networking and influence, we want to re-emphasize that we offer all three. SHARE is not just education through its bi-annual events, but a combination of education, networking, and influence throughout the year.

As such, we plan to continue to build upon these areas of value in the following ways for 2015 and beyond:

Educate: Year-round engagement through face-to-face events, webcasts and blog posts.
Network: Year-round opportunities to connect in-person, online and via conference call with IBM, ISVs, colleagues and other industry thought leaders.
Influence: Participants have unique access to industry thought leaders to offer insights to help shape the future.
