April 18, 2018, Pittsburgh, PA – On April 18, we hosted our second member-only event and first focused exclusively on technology. More than 80 professionals from across our diverse member consortium joined us in Pittsburgh for a robust day that included speed networking, a discussion on our project call topics, an open mic session, idea generation for our new facility, overview presentations from our Quick Start teams, and a networking reception with the ARM board.
During our Tech Day, we debuted a new format of speed networking to help facilitate project-teaming among our members. Additionally, the ideas and feedback generated from our project discovery exercise are expected to help guide our future project calls. The event also provided our members with ample time to provide feedback to ARM staff.
We plan to host another Tech Day later in the year and a similar event focused on Education/Workforce Development.
Members interested in accessing our Tech Day presentations should reach out to ARM Marketing Coordinator, Livia Rice. Please note that the presentation is only available to ARM members.
