MassTLC Tech & Innovation Community
April 21, 2020
Hello Tech Community Members,
As the world continues to change rapidly, your role and responsibilities may be changing along with it. I want to make sure that I continue to bring you valuable information and a place to strengthen your network. Now more than ever we need your insights on challenges and successes to both give help and get help from our peers.

One opportunity to do that is to take advantage of MassTLC Central's Tech & Innovation forum. This is a safe platform - no sales, no gimmicks. Only MassTLC members and only those with technology roles are invited to join. To get started, sign up here.   Once you are on, you can post questions or information that you want to share with others in the forum.

We will also be providing an opportunity for C TOs, VPs of Engineering, and others that lead technical teams to join us for a series of virtual forums to discuss the changes or hurdles that have occurred in this crisis in hopes that others will benefit from the collective experience. More information here .

I would be remiss if I did not conclude this letter without thanking our amazing community sponsors and giving a special call out to our new sponsors: Red Hat and OutSystems who are joining Google , InterSystems , MIT Professional Education , and Progress .

If you have questions, concerns, or information you'd like to share please reach out to me.

Best regards,

Sara Fraim
Sr. Director
