While I am blogging today, I thought that I would mention a great group that I have become a part of, the South Florida Technology Alliance.
The South Florida Technology Alliance (SFTA) promotes the growth, success and awareness of the regional technology community. Through events, networking, programs and education, we provide south Florida’s technology-related companies, academic institutions, entrepreneurs, governments and related organizations with an active forum to grow the business of technology in our region.
The SFTA is truly a great group of people that are dedicated to advancing the technology community in south Florida. This year, I was selected to the Board of Directors and am honored to take the position of Secretary in 2013.
My involvement with this agency is a part of my bigger movement to build bridges between industry and academia. Hopefully, in 2013 we can start some initiatives to get more student involvement with the SFTA and build a more symbiotic relationship between the local universities and the tech community.
Also, if you are looking for a job, there is no better place than an SFTA event. The networking opportunities there are incredible and we even have a spot on our website reserved just for job opportunities.
So, if you are in south Florida and in the tech industry, I would strongly suggest that you look at joining the SFTA!
