Announcing 2019 New TAO Community Affiliate Partnerships!
In order to improve our service in the community and create valuable new partnerships with local community stakeholders who actively support the Oregon Tech community and TAO's mission we offer a unique opportunity for non-profits, public organizations, and educational institutions to partner with the Oregon tech industry.
As a not-for-profit organization TAO understands the commitment we must make in order to support the local communities we serve. and the importance of local partnerships with community stakeholder organizations, including municipal offices, educational institutions, and other non-profits. Offering an affiliate partnership, rather than a traditional membership, allows TAO to offer these organizations TAO member benefits at a discounted price for affiliation compared to our other membership options.
