TecNation: Telling America’s tech story

This year, C_TEC launched TecNation 2019—an effort that leverages all assets of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to execute a variety of tactics that build, and sustainably grow, a positive echo chamber for technology and tech companies across the country. Using a layered approach of policy, research and education at the state and federal level, the campaign is designed to effectively counter the growing chorus of critics and strengthen the tech ecosystem heading into 2020.

Throughout the year, C_TEC will engage the public about the positive personal aspects of data collection, how it is transforming people’s lives, and how they are empowered to use data to make life easier with 10 events across the country and with an aggressive earned media campaign. After each event, C_TEC will share key takeaways with federal influencers to reinforce the positive narrative of tech—marrying our state and federal efforts and further strengthening the positive echo chamber.

As technology and data expand its impact on every sector of the economy, companies require a nimble partner that can keep pace and compete with the critics. C_TEC is the only association able to meet the demands necessary for success. With the diversity of our three million members and our robust network of state and local chambers across the country, C_TEC is the only association with the ability to execute a strategy that will effectively drown out the critics.
