Information technology experts gather at South Tahoe Wednesday for chamber hosted event
An inaugural gathering of information technology professionals is being hosted by the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce and the Northern Nevada Development Association tomorrow.
Professionals from IT businesses as well as those who are IT dependent are invited to come and meet others who have similar interests and concerns.
Software and Internet related businesses are one of the largest “industries” in the Lake Tahoe Basin, yet until now there has been no effort to get executives, leaders and entrepreneurs together.
The event has as its primary goals:
” Provide an avenue for those businesses to develop mutually beneficial relationships
” To identify and pursue solutions to issues of common concern
“We have a saying in the Chamber business that states ‘This is not your grandfather’s Chamber’ and this event is one more indication of the Chamber’s response to a changing business climate and economy” states President and CEO Betty “B” Gorman.
“We are seeking ways to provide meaningful opportunities for businesses to share their needs so that we in turn can assist in finding solutions. Businesses that are supported and successful are more likely to remain in our communities and that is the basis of a sound economic development policy. We can support these businesses and facilitate their support of one another by initiating an ongoing opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue,” she said.
“Figures vary but conservative figures estimate that the number of telecommuters is growing by approximately 15 percent each year and thus the Chamber feels it is crucial to recognize this trend and commence the process of ensuring that community, policy and infrastructure support are here to encourage location-neutral individuals and businesses to consider the Tahoe Basin the perfect home!” concludes Gorman.
IT individuals working from home or in an office environment are invited to attend tomorrow’s gathering being held at 169 Highway 50, Stateline, NV. From 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. Call (775) 588-1728 for more information.
