(ROCKVILLE, MD) May 10, 2009 The Tech Council of Maryland (TCM), representing more than 500 companies in the nation's second largest technology hub, welcomes former Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich as the keynote speaker at its next IT Executive Dinner Club meeting to be held on the evening of Thursday June 25, 2009 at the Pooks Hill Marriott in Bethesda, MD.
Produced by the MdTech Division of the Tech Council of Maryland, the IT Executive Dinner Club is a regular gathering of between 25-30 C-Level IT professionals from the mid-Atlantic region's leading IT companies to network and discuss business challenges and new opportunities.
"Our members are interested in hearing what the former Governor has to say about technology in the mid-Atlantic region. His new role as a radio broadcaster and a businessman gives him a unique perspective that allows him to see things from both a government and corporate point of view," said Rick Harris, Executive Director of the MdTech Division of TCM.
The former Governor is expected to discuss his view of business in the state of Maryland, what promise the IT industry holds in helping to lead the economic recovery and look ahead to the 2010 elections.
Ehrlich served as the 60th Governor for the state of Maryland from 2003 to 2007. Shortly after leaving office, he became founder of the Baltimore office of Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice and he and his wife Kendel host their own show on WBAL-AM Radio in Baltimore on Saturday mornings
