Summer Conference

The annual TECNA Summer Conference is a three-day event focused on sharing best practices and strategies to help you grow your tech council and increase your value to members, sponsors and stakeholders in your communities.

This gathering of North American tech associations and councils helps renew your TECNA connections while offering a glimpse at the tech ecosystem of our member host. Content will focus on building partnerships, examining trends and practices, and growing your organizations.
