Hello Nashville IT Leaders,

On behalf of the conference planning committee and honorary advisors, we invite you to join us at the 2015 Nashville IT Symposium, produced in part by the Nashville Technology Council on October 27th.

The Nashville Technology Council (NTC) offers a professional network that connects senior-level IT leaders with peers in their communities—providing valuable opportunities for knowledge-sharing, professional development, collaboration, and career advancement.  The NTC also provides opportunities for members to give back in community programs and philanthropic work centered on technology and educational advancement, like STEM (Science, Technology, Education, and Math), to help shape the next generation of IT leaders.

We’re confident that you will find the Nashville IT Symposium to be beneficial through the information received, relationships generated, and exciting keynote line-up. The Symposium will enable you to connect with fellow executives and learn from industry leading professionals on how to drive your business, featuring:

   •Keynote speakers on leadership and cutting edge IT topics
   •Interactive breakout sessions with national and local experts
   •Ample networking opportunities with their peers from throughout the region

With annual participation of this event expected to top over 250 executives again this year,  you can’t afford to miss the Nashville IT Symposium.

We look forward to seeing you there.
