We periodically have an Open Topic session so that our local tech leaders can bring burning issues and/or opportunities to share with their peers.
Please join us on December 8th for a candid discussion of challenges and opportunities currently in front of our local tech companies.
The session will be facilitated by Corina Ludwig, and you can submit topics ahead of the meeting by e-mail to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll also use this meeting to plan out topics and facilitators for next year, so if you've got an area that you'd like to see presented and/or discussed amongst your peers, make sure that you come to this next session, or at least let Corina know by email.

The Victoria Advanced Technology Council (VIATeC) is the conduit that connects people, knowledge and resources to grow a successful technology sector in Greater Victoria.
Since VIATeC's inception way back in 1989, the Greater Victoria tech sector has grown to over 800 known technology companies, employing more than 13,000 people and generating in excess of $1.95 billion in annual revenues with an economic impact of $2.65 billion. That's bigger than the revenues generated by the entire NHL and explains why the advanced technology is Greater Victoria's #1 private industry.
VIATeC is intended to be the first place that people contact for information or assistance related to advanced technology in Greater Victoria. VIATeC's membership, which currently stands at over 350 annually elects VIATeC's Board of Directors, which in turn provides guidance to the Executive Director.
