The Affiliate Services Program was initiated to provide workforce development, networking and employee benefits not readily accessible by a start-up or a small business looking to grow. Member benefits have grown, as has the membership with over 40 companies currently participating statewide. As the pace of change accelerates, the Affiliate Services Group keeps our region’s technology businesses ahead of the curve.
