The Technology Association of Georgia is committed to working with our federal, state and local elected officials to promote sound public policies that will enhance the growth of the technology industry, as well as, Georgia’s overall economic development. To ensure we are adequately serving our growing membership base of over 30,000, TAG’s government relations efforts will focus on industry educational outreach to lawmakers and General Assembly updates to TAG members.

TAG is continuing its mission-critical advocacy on behalf of our members during the 2023 session of the Georgia General Assembly, by seeking funding for workforce development throughout the state, advocating for computer science education, and being your voice at the state capitol for issues and policies affecting the technology sector.
