By Larry K. Williams, President and CEO, Technology Association of Georgia

This time of year, has us all reflecting on so much of what we are thankful for. Oftentimes we find ourselves taking a retrospective look at the past year, with a blind eye toward the future. I want to focus on both as we move into this week of Thanksgiving and march toward the end of the year.

At TAG, we have so much to be thankful for. 2023 has been a strong year, with the successful implementation of our 5 major events; 70 society events; increasing attendance and member engagement; the addition of our sold-out inaugural TAG Chairs’ Gala; and so much more.

Additionally, our TAG-Ed and Bridge Builders programs continue to exceed expectations in connecting and growing individuals in the tech ecosystem; providing greater opportunities for people to advance in their careers and get connected to the resources they need to be successful.

As we look ahead, I am equally excited about the coming year. TAG will continue to be the catalyst for this vibrant tech ecosystem, as we look to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Our mission continues to drive all that we do. To that end, we will continue to deliver world-class events; provide even greater member value and service; support our community’s tech leaders and foster an environment that supports the continued success and growth of Georgia’s vibrant tech ecosystem.

A huge thank you to our members, leadership, staff and partners who are the driving force behind our continued success. Together, we will have a remarkable 2024!
