I’m proud to lead an organization that supports such a wide array of industries. TAG has the distinction of being the largest technology association in the state, acting as an umbrella organization supporting 23 societies and over 30,000 members.
TAG is a reflection of Georgia’s technology ecosystem: ever-evolving, improving and growing. At the heart of the organization is the belief that collaboration begets innovation. As one of TAG’s four foundational pillars, “Connect” is vital to the success of our ecosystem. People and organizations connect through TAG to exchange ideas, educate each other, promote innovative technologies and solutions, and enable members to influence policy at over 150 events annually. This vast network helps to make Georgia a top location for technology globally.
TAG’s volunteer-led societies span every aspect of business and includes many industries across Georgia, from diversity & inclusion to sales leadership and from fintech to digital health. Through dedicated members and sponsors, these societies produce ecosystem reports and flash reports that are valuable resources that provide current statistics, case studies, and showcase emerging technologies. Access those ecosystem reports HERE.
TAG strives to recognize and promote our community. This week, the TAG Marketing Society hosted its annual Marketing Awards, celebrating the best and brightest marketing technologists and campaigns that found success in 2020. Congratulations to Curricula (Best COVID Response), Liger Partners (Agency of the Year), and Blake Adams of Florence Health (Marketer of the Year). Next month, TAG will announce Georgia’s Top 40 Innovative Companies and the first annual TAG Technology Awards finalists leading up to the Georgia Technology Summit.
I invite everyone to connect with TAG’s 23 societies at our annual Society Showcase at the Georgia Technology Summit on April 28-29. Whether you are already active in a society or looking to expand your network, I hope to see you there (virtually)!
Have a great weekend,
Larry K. Williams
President & CEO, Technology Association of Georgia (TAG)
