Florida Technology Council holds board meeting

The Florida Technology Council (FTC), a newly formed association exclusively focused on the needs of the technology sector, held its post-regular session board meeting in the Capitol on Thursday. The agenda included a legislative update, a review of the council’s mission statement, goals heading into the 2016 Legislative Session, as well as a question and answer portion with legislative guest, Rep. Jamie Grant.
“We are excited to continue to work to provide a voice for companies looking to take advantage of the exciting opportunity for information technology growth here in Florida,” Executive Director James Taylor said. “We have a real opening to bring together industry leaders and government decision makers to maximize our state’s IT potential and today’s meeting was laser focused on making that goal a reality.”
The FTC’s mission statement is to provide a trusted voice in Florida’s capital city for lawmakers, regulators, CIOs, procurement officials and staff to interact with as they seek information from the technology sector.
The 2015 FTC board includes leading information technology companies, such as Advanced Systems Design, AT&T, CNLBank, Five Points Technology Group, Kyra InfoTech, SAS, Scholastic and Uber Operations.
