The Santa Clara Valley Technology & Engineering Management Society has developed a forum for the discussion of management and leadership topics through monthly dinner meetings, 9-10 throughout each year. Additionally, a Santa Clara Valley TMC website is maintained (www.techmanagers.org) and the chapter occasionally sponsors or supports special events – such as the 2011 International Technology Management Conference in San Jose.

Four director positions are elected each year to help steer the Santa Clara Valley Chapter: Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary. The local council chapter also has several volunteer board support positions. This year we are in particular looking for positions of Chair and Vice Chair.
