I find the Arizona Technology Council’s website an excellent tool for staying up-to-date on the association’s public policy advocacy activities – one of the many benefits I value as a member. I’m constantly referring to the Public Policy and VoteTech Smart Guides to understand how we can work together to improve and support Arizona’s technology and business environment. The site is also my ‘go-to’ resource for networking events. Technology is my world, and the Council is at the center of it – they bring together the entire community with valuable programming that I attend as often as possible.
As a state, we punch above our weight in the nation’s race for technology growth and business success, largely due to the work of the Arizona Technology Council. From workforce development to helping guide the right policies, the Arizona Technology Council’s work has been very consequential in our state’s evolving tech story.
The Arizona Technology Council bridges the technology sectors working and collaborating within Arizona so that our companies and economy grow and thrive. As a member, I benefit by receiving a clear and complete sense of Arizona’s technology landscape. Across the entirety of Arizona’s geography, my organization is connected to the diverse technology enterprises through the Council. Being a member of the Council has elevated my awareness of policy trends and given my organization a way to effectively engage. This is vital as we work to shape the future of our state’s technology ecosystem.
It has been a very rewarding and enriching experience to serve on the Board of Directors of the Arizona Technology Council (AZTC). Arizona is on the forefront of constant innovation to drive Digital adoption as a catalyst for growth. The Council allows extensive collaboration and comradery among the industry leaders whose guidance has led to an enhanced vision for the technology community.
