Triangle Chatter

NCTA Update: Public Policy, Job Fair and Upcoming Events

NC Technology AssociationApril was a great month for the tech sector with lots on deck over the near term.

There was a lot of activity at Capitol, as Governor McCrory released his new budget.  NCTA’s CEO Brooks Raiford has a recap of the Governor’s budget and some of our recent small group meetings with key legislators to discuss North Carolina tax reform.  You can read more in his public policy blog post.

In late April, NCTA helped host a regional job fair, COME TECH OUT the Triangle, featuring nearly 40 companies with a combined 1,000 job openings.  Hundreds of job seekers attended, and many of them were offered positions.

Then, on April 25, nearly 500 leaders from across the state gathered for our annual State of Technology conference, which looked at how technology is redefining the customer relationship.  There was a great line-up of speakers exploring everything from social media, to customer analytics, to privacy laws and more.  If you missed the event, we have a recap of the keynote presentations and breakout sessions going up on the NCTA blog.

Looking ahead, NCTA has a busy schedule of activities:

June 13 – Emerging Tech + Trends (Winston-Salem):  this breakfast will feature a panel discussion on how companies are identifying and retaining talent in the Triad.

July 25 – Annual Golf Tournament (Grandover Resort, Greensboro):  over 140 golfers will gather for a captain’s choice format. 

July 25/26 – Annual Leadership Conference (Grandover Resort, Greensboro):  hosted by our Board of Directors and attended by leaders of our member companies, this annual retreat is a highly anticipated opportunity for executive engagement in a relaxed setting.  Attendance is purposely capped to ensure high quality interaction.
