The Maryland Tech Council is the only technology council in Maryland with a full-time presence in Annapolis. That means that we work year-round advocating for interests of technology and biotechnology on behalf of our members. Addressing threats and opportunities on the local, state, and federal levels is one of the most critical factors for the interests of highly competitive IT and life science companies. The Maryland Tech Council has an experienced government relations team that represents its members' interest and seeks to influence policymakers on issues such as tech, life science, economic development, capital formation, higher education, transportation, workforce, tax climate, and more.
The Government Relations Committee advises and directs the Maryland Tech Council's advocacy efforts with legislators and policymakers on issues of importance to the technology and life science industries. Membership is available to any association member who wishes to play a direct role in the Maryland Tech Council’s advocacy efforts. The Government Relations Committee gives you the opportunity to influence our efforts and help create the most positive environment for your tech or life science business. Through the Government Relations Committee, you can meet important policymakers who influence Maryland's knowledge economy, form partnerships with other companies interested in government relations, learn about policy trends important to the technology and life science industries, play a major role in creating a favorable business climate for your business, and influence the Tech Council’s overall government relations strategy.
