How can our senior tech leadership participate in your Technology Executive Council?

Each month, with the exception of July and December, TBTF hosts the Technology Executive Council as a meeting of our regions executive IT leaders from some of the most prominent companies in the US. This forum is a mix between open discussion, idea exchange, best practices, and target outside speakers delivering on topics created by the members of the council. This council is not a vendor event and has a strict non-solicitation policy. The only vendors/service providers permitted to attend are sponsoring organizations which are limited in number creating a true council of IT executive leadership in our region.

Criteria for Attending TBTF Technology Executive Council:

  • You are the CIO (or CTO, CISO, Vice President, or Director) of your company’s information technology operations.
  • Your company is headquartered in the Greater Tampa Bay region (Tampa, St Petersburg, Sarasota, Bradenton, and Lakeland). If your company is headquartered elsewhere then your company’s information technology infrastructure is located in our region.
  • You have MORE THAN 50 FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES
  • Your company generates MORE THAN $25MM IN REVENUE.
  • You company DOES NOT provide professional services, consulting, reselling, custom development, or any other category of service provider. EXCEPTION: If the service provider organization has their corporate headquarters in Tampa, has over 200 employees and more than $100 million in revenue then the CIO or VP that oversees internal IT for the organization may attend the meetings.
  • All registrations for Technology Executive Council will be reviewed by the Technology Executive Council Committee for approval on monthly attendance.
