A Message from the ITAG Chair

As the chair of ITAG, I extend thanks for your interest, and a warm welcome with encouragement to join us. ITAG focuses on helping technology companies in southeastern Pennsylvania grow and succeed. Embodying the spirit of “coopetition,” we act as a conduit to bring training funds to upskill employees; we work together on challenges facing the tech industry; we learn about new opportunities and ways to run our businesses more efficiently; and we have some fun along the way. Whether they are C-level executives, cybersecurity experts, or tech practitioners, technical-minded people often need a place to go for enrichment and relief. ITAG helps workers and their organizations thrive. And ITAG is not a membership organization, so there are no dues.

Here are just a few of our recent accomplishments:

  • To help expand the local tech workforce, we’ve developed a comprehensive series of youth programs, run diversity and inclusion training and discussion forums, and provided grants to employers for worker training.
  • We’ve established a cybersecurity action team that is heavily engaged with international experts and helps provide resources and best practices to local businesses
  • To keep us informed, we produce an annual Tech360 conference, where speakers introduce new ideas and share successes and failures from both a tech and business perspective
  • We meet quarterly to help stay connected, discuss latest news and trends, and plan our next events.

We are eager for you to join us at a meeting or an event to help enrich our regional tech community. I hope to see you soon!
