NEC Launches Technology & Innovation Working Group

Kick-Off Meeting February 17

The New England Council is pleased to announce that we are relaunching our Technology Committee as a new Technology & Innovation Working Group.

The Technology Committee was established many years ago to bring together Council members in the traditional “technology” sector.  However, we know that today, technology has permeated every sector of our economy, and as such, technology policy is of interest to Council members across an array of industries.   The new cross-sector Technology & Innovation Working Group will bring together Council members from a variety of sectors to work collaboratively on federal policy that impacts our region’s Innovation Economy more broadly.

Examples of some of the topics this new working group might focus on include:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Broadband & 5G Connectivity
  • Cybersecurity
  • Data Privacy
  • Intellectual Property
  • Workforce Demands

The working group will assist the Council in identifying federal policy proposals for possible advocacy, host relevant guest speakers, and identify topics that may be of interest for Council-wide programming.  Emily Heisig, SVP Communication & Federal Affairs, and Taylor Pichette, Federal Affairs Manager, will be the NEC staff contacts for this working group.

We will host a kick-off meeting for the new Technology & Innovation Working Group on Thursday, February 17, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. 


If you are not able to join the meeting, but would like to share suggestions or ideas for the group to consider, or simply would like to be added to the distribution list for this committee, please contact Emily or Taylor.
