We at Owler have long been fans of the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). When the founding team was at Jigsaw we were members, and one of the first things that we did when Owler was founded was to join SIIA.
As part of both the software and information industries, it is invaluable to be able to connect with other leaders to discuss the challenges that we are all facing and to stay abreast of the latest trends and policies that affect us. More specifically, participating in the Content Division (CISD) has allowed us to ensure we are maintaining industry best practices as well as helping get our name out there to the community.
CODiE’s are all peer-recognized awards and have a long history of over 29 years – making the distinction of winning that much more meaningful as a recognition of excellence within the industry.
Although we regrettably no longer qualify, the CODiE’s Join and Save program for new members is an ideal way for companies to get a head start in the industry by joining SIIA and earning a free award nomination for the CODiE’s as they do so. Nominations this year just opened and run through November 7. So if you aren’t yet a member, now is the perfect time to join! More details are available via the CODiE’s site here: http://www.siia.net/codies/2015/nominate.asp
