Legislators to Learn How IT Sector Will Lead Economic Recovery
(ROCKVILLE, MD) January 22, 2009 The state of Maryland's four leading technology associations announced today that they will collaborate to host the Maryland IT Showcase on February 19, 2009, at the Governor Calvert House in Annapolis, Maryland, from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m. The Maryland IT Showcase will allow IT companies from throughout the state of Maryland an opportunity to showcase their products and services to members of the Maryland General Assembly and other leaders in state government.
The four groups are the Tech Council of Maryland (TCM), the Greater Baltimore Tech Council (GBTC), the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council (CRTC) and the Maryland Computer Services Association (MCSA). TCM, GBTC, CRTC and MCSA represent over 800 technology companies in the nation's second largest technology hub.
"Technology companies must continue to be a powerful presence in Annapolis and educate our legislators on the economic value that we bring to the state," said Larry Letow, President and COO of Convergence Technology Consulting in Glen Burnie, Maryland. "The Maryland IT Showcase will unite the IT community and bring our industry access to our elected officials. We want to demonstrate how the IT sector can lead an economic recovery in the state," he said.
Over 30 of the state of Maryland's leading IT companies are expected to exhibit at this showcase. This gives an opportunity for Maryland delegates and senators to meet Maryland's IT business people face-to-face to learn their successes and challenges.
