Why I Support VFI
I learned very early in my career how policy is shaped and created. You have to be passionately involved – make time to attend meetings, develop networks, and help to educate people for your cause. Our Legislative representatives are not typically technologists. It is our job as technology advocates to help educate them not only in what we do, but how important it is to our state and national economy.
