Having been in the Technology business in the Capital District for 30 years, we know as well as any organization that making the right technology decisions can make or break an organization. The ever-changing technology environment affects all business owners, and key decisions will have to be made to determine the future path of an organization.

Please join us for a fast paced relaxed educational Lunch and Learn where we will examine the Technology changes that are upon us and the challenges and choices that business owners will have to navigate.  This will be a 10,000 foot view that is geared to the novice or technology savvy business owners and IT Professionals. Please see full agenda below.

 ****Complimentary Lunch will be served****

Plan to stay for dessert and a 30-minute organization networking session with all the participants after the interactive presentation

For those of you that are new to our business community seminars, I encourage you to sign up early as I’m sure this will be an extremely desirable event. Limit 2 people per Company. Please preregister at http://technologyroadmap.eventbrite.com or email Chris at cwaggoner@tech-ii.com.
