A lot of great things happening at NCTA in 2013

NC Technology AssociationNCTA CEO Brooks Raiford was appointed by the Governor to North Carolina’s eLearning Commission.  The eLearning Commission is dedicated to creating and promoting a collaborative online learning environment that promotes student achievement, business success, economic stability, and lifelong learning for every citizen of North Carolina.  You can view a video message from former Governor Perdue, the Chair of the North Carolina eLearning Commission, or visit to learn more.

January was full of great events for our membership and the tech sector.  On the 11th, 100 leaders convened for an NCTA post-election panel discussion featuring Congressman David Price and NC Representative Marilyn Avila.  They discussed anticipated activity at the federal and state level that might be of particular interest to the tech community.

Then on January 17, we hosted Walt Mossberg for our Thought Leaders breakfast event, where over 250 area leaders heard his thoughts about advances in technology.  Walt is the personal technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and co-founder of AllThingsD.

Later this week (on February 1), NCTA will hold its annual Outlook for IT event in Charlotte, presented in partnership with Gartner and featuring presentations from Michael Smith, VP of Research for Garter, Mike Manos, CTO of AOL Services, and Tom Beck, VP-Recruiting for Experis.

NCTA will celebrate its 20th anniversary in February, and we are stronger than at any point in our history.  Click here to view NCTA’s upcoming activities or to learn more about membership.  All companies, organizations, and institutions are eligible to join.  We hope you’ll engage with us.
