Information Technology Alliance

The Central Wisconsin Information Technology Alliance (CWITA) was formed in June 2015 and is a voluntary organization of employers focused on Information Technology workforce challenges and solutions, with support from the North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board, UW-Stevens Point, Northcentral, Mid-State and Nicolet Technical Colleges, chambers of commerce, K-12 educational institutions, economic development entities, and other associated partners.

CWITA’s mission is to attract, skill, and retain an exceptional information technology workforce in central Wisconsin.

The four objectives of the Alliance are to:
1. target and strengthen development of an information technology workforce;
2. grow collaborative pathways and partnerships with the K-16 educational system;
3. position Central Wisconsin as a hub for information technology opportunities; and
4. enhance the image of information technology careers.

Cliff King, Skyward and Kimberly Stitcher, Collaborative Consulting , are the co-chairs of the Alliance with NCWWDB’s Workforce Services Coordinator Nicole Rice providing administrative support. The Alliance also has three active workgroups focused on community development, higher education, and K12.
