Georgia CIO Leadership Association Recruits Morris, Manning & Martin as Underwriter


Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP has joined the Georgia CIO Leadership Association (GCLA) as its sole law firm underwriter. The GCLA is underwritten by contributions from Deloitte, Intellinet, IBM Internet Security Systems, Microsoft, and Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP. With the support of these companies, the GCLA assures all of its events remain noncommercial and are attended solely by CIO-level executives. In addition, support from these companies allows the GCLA Advisory Board to address common issues and define trends and programming to shape the discussion at GCLA events.

“We are very excited to be underwriting the Georgia CIO Leadership Association. As a leading technology law firm in the U.S., it’s a natural relationship for us,” said John C. Yates, chair of MMM’s Technology Group. “MMM works closely with many leading CIOs in the State and region,” said Yates. “We are looking forward to continuing those vital relationships and helping the GCLA to continue its significant growth.”
