• Events Community of Interest

  • The TECNA Events Community of Interest (CoI) is a peer-to-peer collaboration and information-sharing group. Over quarterly calls, TECNA members who support events gain new insights from an invited speaker. The second half of each call is designed for networking, sharing best practices and raising questions, so that we are best positioned to host top-notch events that provide member value and revenue for our tech councils/associations. This CoI is a "TECNA member only" group. For more information or to join, please contact abaghdasaryan@tecna.org

    Topic:  What is your most unique and high-quality event?

    Join us for our next Events Community of Interest session as we explore the unique gatherings TECNA members have hosted to boost the engagement of their tech companies.  From informal happy hours to the more elaborate sit-down dinners, tech councils and associations are always striving to boost quality, while decreasing expenses. This session will be a valuable continuation of our in-person gathering, held at the Portland Summer Conference, where Events team members will share their learning lessons and best practices for not only increasing attendance, but intrigue for attendees of council and association events.

    Questions to be discussed during this session:

    ●What councils and associations have mastered a small, but mighty event that tech companies are still talking about?

    ●What has been the biggest learning lesson on a pilot event that just didn’t turn out the way it was planned?

    ●What types of pre and post engagement have you included that has worked well?
