The Arizona Technology Council is once again participating in the annual TECNA Fly-In in our nation’s capital organized by the national trade association TECNA (Technology Councils of North America). The Council would like technology executives representing member companies to join AZTC President + CEO Steve Zylstra in meetings with each of the Congressional delegation offices on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Other parts of the trip include a dinner for the Arizona contingent on Monday, February 10, 2014 and a half-day of presentations followed by an awards event on Tuesday, February 11, 2014.
The Council has participated in this annual event for the past four years and taken executives from the following member companies on the trip: Nammo Talley, Signature Technology Group, IDS Technology Marketing, GlobalMedia Group, LLC, IO, DMD Systems Recovery, Inc., MSS Technologies, 360 Vantage and IR Labs.
Registration information for the event is available via the TECNA website, but please RSVP to Leigh Goldstein at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending. We need to know exactly how many members (and who) will be in attendance, as we will be setting up meetings with various government representatives. Each year we limit attendance to five to seven members due to space limitations in the Congressional offices.
About the Program
Business leaders from small and medium-sized technology companies nationwide come to Capitol Hill to advocate for public policies that are tech-friendly and will create jobs and reinvigorate the economy. CompTIA and TECNA members and partners will meet with their Congressional representatives, honor Congressional and industry leaders that are champions in regards to growth-oriented tech policies and discuss Internet governance, taxes and workforce policies to accelerate the technology industry and economy.
