The Technology Association of Oregon (TAO) bridges industry and government to drive policies that ensure growth and success for our region’s tech industry. As the voice of the Oregon & SW Washington tech industry, we work with federal, state and local officials to promote policies that cultivate a strong tech community, in addition to ensuring opportunities for statewide economic development.
Our advocacy group supports legislation and initiatives that ensure growth and success for Oregon’s tech industry, including improving the state’s business environment to foster a more inclusive innovation economy, developing and attracting tech talent, and helping governments to use technology to improve the delivery and accessibility of critical services to all Oregonians.
2022 Legislative Session Preview + Opportunities to Get Involved
Did you know that a benefit of TAO membership is direct access to the policy making process that affects the regional technology industry? Were you aware that on an annual basis, TAO tracks proposed bills at the local, State and federal level and weighs in based on input from local technology leaders?
