August 4, 2020 - A Virtual Event
The NTC Annual Meeting is going virtual!
Same great content, same great speakers, same networking opportunities, delivered right to you.
Now more than ever we feel it is important to bring our tech community together to not only reflect on what has changed and transpired over the last few months but to also look ahead and engage in meaningful discussion about how we as a community accelerate into a rapidly changing future.
We are excited to announce that we will be using the virtual platform Lunchpool to bring the Annual Meeting experience right to you!
Through the platform, you will have the opportunity to engage in virtual table based-networking (just like in-person!) before heading into our scheduled presentation. While networking, you will be able to move around freely from table to table and connect with fellow attendees via video and text chat.
So bring your coffee and join us at the Annual Meeting!
After the morning networking session, all attendees will be invited to join the virtual presentation portion of the event.
