  • 1. TAG Sponsorship Booklet 2013
  • 2. About TAG The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) is a membership organization dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of the state’s technology industry. Our mission is to provide members with a rich and broad professional development curriculum and the opportunity to create strategic alliances. TAG provides leadership in driving initiatives that influence policy, capital, education, and giving, and we bring the technology community together through events, initiative programs, and networking opportunities. TAG was formed in 1999 with the merger of three of the state’s largest technology organizations: the Southeastern Software Association, the Business and Technology Alliance, and Women in Technology. Since its inception, TAG has been one of the largest technology organizations in the nation. Today, our nearly 21,000 membership includes thought leaders from technology companies both large and small, executives of FORTUNE 500 companies, investors, service providers, government and civic leaders, and entrepreneurs. The Technology Association of Georgia aims to build, connect, and enable; people, companies, and communities. Its 31 societies act as a distribution channel for TAG programs, offering over 200 meetings and seminars per year. TAG coordinates a series of meetings and events including the Featured Speaker Series, the Field Trip Series, and the Georgia Technology Summit. TAG expands its reach by fostering public and private partnerships with organizations such as the Atlanta Telecom Professionals, the MIT Enterprise Forum, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, and Georgia Department of Economic Development. In addition to adding value for its members, TAG’s Board of Directors, Leadership Council, and staff act as a primary catalyst for fostering a rich environment for technology growth in the State of Georgia. TAG endeavors to help Georgia’s technology companies speak with a strong voice. TAG serves as a liaison to Chambers of Commerce statewide and beyond to attract new businesses and prospective employers. The Association also keeps members informed concerning the legislative agenda affecting our industry. TAG, in collaboration with TechAmerica as their Georgia Council, actively promotes positive legislative change in Georgia that will advance our thriving technology community and drive statewide economic development. 2

  • 13. CIO Roundtable • Today, the expectations on a CIO are great.

  • 15. Excalibur Awards • TAG initiated the Excalibur awards in 2005 to recognize and call attention to Georgia’s “tech-enabled” companies who demonstrate exemplary competency in utilizing technology to enhance their business. • We define a “tech-enabled” as a buyer of technology as opposed to a producer. The best of these companies find great ways to use current and often times, disruptive technology to facilitate competitive advantage. Every February, at the Georgia Technology Summit, TAG recognizes the achievements of the top technology companies. Our Excalibur awards distinguish the people, departments and companies, large and small, who are the recipients of such technologies. • The Excalibur award competition affords technology companies, consultants, Chambers of Commerce and other institutions an excellent opportunity to nominate the companies that understand the importance of technology, make the investment, and reap the rewards.
