The Arizona Technology Council Stands with Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey

Posted on: Sep 1, 2017 | By: Lauren Witte

As the fallout from Hurricane Harvey continues to unfold throughout Texas and the Gulf Coast, millions are without homes and floodwaters are continuing to rise. The Arizona Technology Council joins the nation in thoughts and prayers for the people separated from loved ones and in dire need of help.

“With a long-term recovery period ahead, it’s important that we come together and pitch in to alleviate the suffering of those affected,” said Steven Zylstra, president and CEO, Arizona Technology Council. “We encourage our members and Arizona’s entire technology community to help by pledging support to the victims of this great disaster.”
