Communities of Interest

TECNA Communities of Interest (CoI) are peer-to-peer collaborations and information-sharing groups for TECNA Members.

TECNA Members connect with their peers on other technology councils via Slack Channels and on quarterly, monthly, or weekly webinars to share best practices, challenges and share resources in their roles in their technology councils.
