Membership is the driving force behind ICTAM and membership has its benefits.
Membership offers insight, involvement, professional development, networking, perspective and career opportunities. Here are just some of the many ways ICTAM supports the Manitoba Technology Community’s current and future needs.
Our benefits program includes the following:
We’re your link to the local and international tech community. Through our strong network that includes membership to national and international organizations such as the Canadian Digital Media Network** and Tech Councils of North America, there are so many opportunities for members. Every year, we offer a variety of programming and events, from monthly Tech Mash Ups to the Community Dinner, The Innovators, DisruptED and more, giving members the chance to network with people from all levels of industry and opportunities to learn.
ICTAM is invested in working with members to create a tech-friendly Manitoba and championing the causes you care about. Members have the opportunity to participate in roundtables and join committees that will determine Manitoba’s future as an inclusive and diverse hub for innovation.
ICTAM members get preferred rates on select hotels, car rentals, office supplies, Park & Ride and more.
Building a talent pipeline is key to a thriving tech sector. We offer professional development training to member companies in a variety of areas and support initiatives to train recent immigrants and youth in tech skills that make them highly employable. By working closely with educational institutions from K-12 along with universities and colleges to get students ready for the future and the workforce, we are seeing the tech talent pool in Manitoba grow.
