Earlier this year, we surveyed TAO members and others within Oregon's software and technology communities to get a better understanding of their key legislative priorities for the 2011 session.
The results of the survey not only confirmed that our members have some clear priority issues (Economic Development and Education), but that they believe Oregon's software and technology community has much to offer state government's efforts to improve efficiency and effectiveness, and that TAO can help play a role in all of these.
Whether you are a voting constituent, or a member of the technology and business community,
you have valuable perspectives to share with your elected officials.
Your efforts can often have direct influence on decisions they make, and we encourage you to get involved.
