advocacy in government

Tech is constantly evolving, and due to the quick changing nature of our industry oftentimes laws and regulations do not keep pace.

CTA monitors these issues on our members behalf and maintains relationships with public officials and decision makers to inform and influence.

Advocacy Partnerships

CTA partners with CompTIA through their Tech Council Advocacy Alliance to represent the interests of the information technology industry in Washington, D.C. to support legislative policies that advance free and open competition, promote a highly educated and technical workforce, encourage collaboration and cooperation in ideas and technology, and advance regulations that positively impact the ability of the private sector to effectively research, develop, integrate, manufacture, service and freely sell solutions in the global marketplace.

As part of our partnership with CompTIA, CTA has access to OneClickPolitics, an online grassroots tool that supports our advocacy efforts. OneClickPolitics is a powerful communications tool that serves as a hub for stakeholders in the technology industry to connect directly with policy makers in their district, stay up to date on the latest legislative activities and learn more about elected officials and their platforms.

TECNA which represents approximately 60 IT and Technology trade organizations that, in turn, represent more than 22,000 technology-related companies in North America. CTA partners with TECNA to advocate for tech-friendly policies.

The Advocacy Coalition is a non-partisan group that believes computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, and that we must increase participation and access for female students and underrepresented minority students. CTA shares these values and partners to promote them in Colorado.
