September 2018 Chairman Newsletter

Hello Everyone!

Happy End of Summer to you all! I know I didn’t want it to end, but we live in WNY and we love all four seasons, so bring on Fall! I wanted to drop you all a note of thanks for allowing me to be your Chairman of Infotech. I have been meeting and taking calls from many members, both past and present, about ideas of where Infotech can grow and help our community. If you have a suggestion or an idea, myself and our board members are always open to new ideas, so contact us today!


So let us talk about what Infotech WNY has coming up in September!!


First off, we are a proud sponsor of Buffalo Startup Weekend, in its 8th season, this weekend September 14 - 16! One of the best ways to learn how to create a business is over this 48-hour period. Every year some great ideas come out of this event, and over the years several businesses have continued well after the weekend!


Secondly, we have our Fall Networking Event on Thursday, September 8 from 6-8pm. We have it in a unique location called Duende in Silo City. We have some fantastic sponsors and a VIP hour from 5-6pm to learn about what Ronco Communications and Extreme Networks are working on now. Come and join us!


We are also a part of the Project Management Institute Fall 2018 Professional Development Day on Tuesday, September 25.


We are sending a few Board members to the Digital Rochester Awards on Wednesday, September 26 to celebrate with them as they joined us this past May for our BETAS.


I hope to see you at one or more of these events and please contact me at if you have any questions, or would like to meet with me.
