How to Get and Stay Engaged with Minnesota's Technology Community

We curate engagement opportunities that center the needs and interests of our members and the broader technology ecosystem. The health of our community is reflective of how we consistently engage: we ask that you keep showing up and participating. Keep asking questions and building new meaningful relationships. Keep finding ways to leverage your passion, skillsets, and interests to be an active apart of the Minnesota technology ecosystem.

Below are just a few ways you can get engaged. Explore now!

Communities of Interest (COIs)

COIs are at the core of how we build community as an organization. Communities meet regularly around specific topics, shared experiences, and goals and they give members a platform to collaborate in a non-competitive environment. Community members share their experiences and showcase their successes, illuminate the needs of the technology community, and drive research for our ecosystem.

Peer forums

For the last 10 years we’ve hosted “CIO Forums” as a way to drive an environment of collaboration that’s “for CIOs, by CIOs.” We’re now extending this effective platform to other job roles and functional positions. Forums provide excellent networking opportunities as well as peer-to-peer candid discussions around technology issues, trends and challenges that technology leaders and contributors face every day. Checkout Peer Forums to learn more about how leverage this platform.
