Review for New Orleans Technology Council Corporation, New Orleans, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served on the LTC Board for over 10 years, and seen the organization grow in membership, service, recognition, and prestige. LTC's President, Mark Lewis, has steadily advanced the organization to be a leader in technology issues across the State of Louisiana, and gains exposure daily on a wider scale. Strong support comes from the comminity through Board participation, event planning and financial committment. Committee activities nurtured by LTC leadership benefits members and non-members through education, skills up-grade and outreach to expand the technology sector in the region. Post Katrina, LTC provided incubator offices for small companies flooded out of their own facility, as well as for new companies relocating to New Orleans. LTC solicited and recieved donated hardware which was then rented along with very affordable office rates so these companies could participate in the recovery of the region. They also received State grants to assist companies in developing websites and web services, which greatly helped those concerns ramp up their business.
