I have been a BOD member of the LTC since 2002 specifically to support the efforts of the LTC in their quest to build relationships and synergies between business, government and education to build the region as the "Technology Capital of the South". The LTC lead my Mark Lewis, the second major reason I have been a board member and major sponsor, has performed in a stellar fashion while pursuing it's goals and growing the value added that is necessary to help the region expand. Post Katrina the LTC has been a bright spot in so many ways including providing consulting, infrastructure, and management support to fledgling and large organizations. The LTC has exemplified what such an organization liek this could and should be doing to capture the hearts and minds of so many to promote growth and expansion of technology. My hat is off to the LTC and it's dedicated leader, Mark Lewis.

The President of the Louisiana Technology Council, Mark Lewis, is constatntly contacted by candidates who are seeking positions in the technology fields. These candidates may be considering relocating to Louisiana, initially entering the workforce, totally changing their career paths, or simply seeking new opportunity. The Louisiana Technology Council serves as a conduit for these highly qualified professionals to seek opportunity they may otherwise not have access if the Council didn't exist. As a result, the Council provides for growth of a highly qualified workforce.
