I Love my MTC Member-to-Member Referral Program

At the Maryland Tech Council, our purpose is to foster innovation, collaboration, and growth within Maryland’s technology and life sciences community. To further this mission and create added value for our members, we have implemented a Member-to-Member Referral  Program. This initiative aims to strengthen our community, promote networking, and enhance the collective success of our organization and its members.

The implementation of a Member-to-Member Referral Program aligns with our mission at MTC to create a dynamic and supportive ecosystem for technology and life sciences professionals. By fostering collaboration, networking, and knowledge sharing, this program will empower our members, drive the growth of our organization, and play a vital role in advancing Maryland’s technology and life sciences sectors.

Why are we offering a Member-to-Member Program:

  • Drive Membership Engagement
  • Strengthen the Maryland Tech Council’s Impact
  • Promote Diversity and Inclusivity
  • Support Economic Growth
  • Foster Collaborative Connections
  • Expand Networking Opportunities
  • Enhance Knowledge Sharing

“MTC is a must-have for any organization or individual looking to connect with our region’s dynamic industry leaders”

– Tonia Jacobson, Interim Homes
