Unbeatable Networking - Monthly Technology & Toast meetings, peer groups, the RBTC LinkedIn group, and annual events where you can meet other technology leaders, make valuable business contacts, and, of course, stay current with the growing regional technology sector.

  3. Increased Visibility for Your Company - The RBTC hosts numerous events, coordinates opportunities with media, fields requests for speakers and project collaborators, and provides other opportunities to raise the visibility of your company. Even if you don't have customers in the area, it's important that business and technology leaders know who you are and what you do. That's how doors get opened!
  4. Online Membership Directory - Our online membership directory is a searchable online database of member company profiles. Our goal is to help make connections to knowledge area experts and collaboration partners within the RBTC membership - to help you find the partner you need and to help those looking for partners find you!
  5. Regional Recruiting of Knowledgeworkers - There's a shortage of technology workers nationally, so everyone is competing for the same talent. The RBTC promotes our region to attract these valuable assets.

Free Job Board - Not only is there no cost to post your jobs, but the RBTC job board pushes your job to 10 public job boards like Craigslist, LinkedIn, Simply Hired, where tech talent is already looking! So, it makes your HR person's job easier by cutting down on the number of job boards they need to update. And by posting your jobs to the RBTC job board, you're helping the RBTC promote the opportunity for tech talent in our region!
