I've been a member of CTC since 1999 and in that time, I've seen it grow and help businesses and people in Carroll County. We have produced a local access television series about technology issues in the county important to people, helped municipalities identify needs and goals, donated over 500 refurbished computers to needy families and non profit organizations in Carroll County, and offered educational seminars to the public on all aspects of technology from network security to using social media to promote your business. We trying to help promote all aspects of technology in the county as well as attract businesses. The people who make up CTC are interesting and friendly and really want to make a difference in their community. I've enjoyed my time and want to continue to help this organization grow. I never expected it to so well when we became independent of the Chamber of Commerce in 2005.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching families with children receive a donated computer. It's fun to see their excitement, and at least a few of the families have written us to say thank you.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
meeting all kinds of interesting people who are either members or who have visited us.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
personable, friendly, direct.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Really help Carroll County keep its rural charm while attracting businesses to the county, so more residents could work where they live. And to help the underprivileged become competitive in the workplace through training and education.
