The History of TAG:

TAG launched in January 1999 as a merger of three of the state's largest technology organizations: the Southeastern Software Association, the Business and Technology Alliance, and Women in Technology. At its launch, TAG became one of the largest technology organizations in the country.

TAG is headquartered in Atlanta and has chapters in Greater Augusta, Columbus, Middle Georgia, Savannah, and Athens. The organization is part of the Technology Councils of North America.
