GMIS International creates excellence in government IT by developing and fostering professional public sector IT management. The organization provides members with technical assistance, training, and information resources in all areas of technology. The leadership and IT management decisions made by GMIS International's nearly 450 members affect individuals in thousands of communities, from small towns with populations of a few thousand to metropolitan areas serving several million.


GMIS International advances good governance by supporting communities that understand the value of professional IT management in the public sector. GMIS International regularly convenes and facilitates gatherings of public sector IT professionals to consider and respond to emerging issues.


Since 1971, GMIS International has sponsored an annual conference that enables public sector IT managers and their staffs to network, discuss key issues, review major local government developments, adopt policy statements, and conduct association business. Conference keynote addresses, educational sessions, workshops, and field demonstrations provide attendees with an unparalleled opportunity for acquiring new tools and techniques to address the problems facing public sector IT administrators today. GMIS International's Annual Conference typically attracts hundreds of IT public sector professionals from cities throughout the world.


Equity, transparency, honor, integrity, commitment, and stewardship are standards for excellence in democratic public sector governance. GMIS International promotes such ethical conduct through its Code of Ethics, publications on ethics issues, technical assistance, and advice to members. Additionally, the organization's members adhere to the principles of the GMIS International Code of Ethics as a condition of professional certification.


GMIS International in cooperation with the Center for Public Technology at the University Of North Carolina School Of Government offers the Certified Government Chief Information Officer™ (CGCIO™) Program. The CGCIO™ Certification Program is a twelve-month course that lays the foundation for assessing and addressing some of the most critical issues facing IT leadership in the public sector. The purpose of this program is to equip leaders with the requisite tools to manage and improve organizational technology assets.


GMIS International consults with and collaborates with IT leaders from around the world to implement sound, innovative IT management and leadership practices in the public sector. There are currently six international organizations affiliated with GMIS International.
