GET TO KNOW US!

Established in 2014 our vision was to bring to Portland a premier technology consortium focused on trust and reliability in the Portland market.  The founding members had the vision that that Portland market needs a trusted partner network to solve technology needs of the small-mid size market in Portland.   Our members are seasoned professionals in their industry, all coming with 10+ years of experience in their respective fields and hold the same values as the others in the group.  Membership not fee-based but becoming a member is voted on through an intensive interview process with existing members.  Our members must meet the requirements of trust and strategic approach to IT through a set of established bylaws and conduct.   Initial membership is a six month "probationary period" as an associate member, and at six months members vote to promote associate members to partner membership and become permanent members of the group.
