From the President of TechRochester
As we head into the 2oth year of TechRochester, I look back at all that’s changed since this organization was formed (originally as Digital Rochester). What initially started out as a networking and education group for the then small community of technology professionals in the Rochester NY market has grown into a cohesive group of professionals working across an array of businesses who not only work together to build relationships and stay ahead of technology trends, but also focus on growth of the community as well.
In the early days, our meetings consisted of get togethers on the rooftop of the now defunct Tonic, featuring snacks, beverages and a short presentation from the leader of a newly formed or growing technology organization. They were a lot of fun, provided a chance to meet others and yes, learn a little bit. Nearly 2o years later, we’ll host two major events, Technology Woman of the Year and the GREAT awards, an annual golf tournament that raises funds for student scholarships and host more than two dozen specialized events focused on our Peer Goup interest areas.
I’m thrilled to be working with a strong leader, our Executive Director, Kim Gaylord, the key to the organization’s strength and progress. Her sound guidance, dedication and leadership continues to move TechRochester forward.
With our commitment to the community and education, we’re always looking to engage new members and provide platforms for both personal, professional and business growth. If you’d like to get more involved, please let us know. We’re always on the lookout for volunteers, speakers, supporters and engaged members.
We look forward to seeing you at events and sharing your part of Rochester’s technology history and future!
