Arizona Technology Council

The Arizona Technology Council is the premier trade association for science and technology companies across Arizona. The Council is home to more than 700 member companies that range in size from early-stage startups to larger corporations that are household names. The Council hosts more than 100 events per year and offers member companies with a variety of resources to expand their mission and grow their capacity, including an association health plan, a multiple-employer 401(k) plan and discounted tuition for degree programs at certain in-state educational institutions. 

The Council also works to advocate for a technology-focused, pro-growth and business-focused agenda at the federal, state and local levels. Each year, the Council publishes a Public Policy Guide that showcases its legislative priorities for the year.

What is your 2023 focus?

In 2023, the Council is building on the momentum of celebrating its 20th anniversary by reflecting on its successes, identifying opportunities to deepen its engagement in the community and growing its overall impact. The Council is doing this by better describing and promoting the value it can bring to prospective and existing member companies, more intentionally attracting diverse and next-generation professionals and better facilitating human connections and collaboration. In sum, the Council wants to not only celebrate technological innovation, but highlight how technology can positively transform the lives of Arizonans statewide.
