CIO Transition Tips

It is time to start a new year as a CIO officer!  With the fall semester approaching, your CIO has either transitioned or will start transitioning in the fall.  These quick tips will help your CIO transition into the 2012-2013 school year!

  1. As an outgoing officer, you should give the incoming officers enough time to transition.   By allowing them to shadow you, this provides a great start to the transition.
  2. The outgoing officers should schedule a time with the incoming officers to evaluate the previous year, teach the position, and discuss goals for the upcoming school year.
  3. A binder with information about the CIO and position itself is always helpful for incoming officers.  CIOs can also upload documents through atUVa to help with a smoother transition and provide a central location for transition documents.
  4. Outgoing officers should go over the CIO agreement with incoming officers to make sure they have a clear understanding of what it means to be a CIO at the University.
  5. When transitioning, make sure to update your CIO’s information in atUVa.  It is very important to have a current individual as the primary contact.  Student Activities communicates with the primary contact listed in atUVa.  This is how other students search for CIOs and where Student Activities directs people to find current contact information on CIOs at the University.
  6. Student Activities encourages you to take advantage of the CIO workshops to better prepare yourself as a student leader and to raise awareness about resources available to you.
