Dear Tech248 Network Members:

To meet the needs of the rapidly growing and evolving information technology (IT) industry sector, the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity-Workforce Development (LEO-WD) is seeking employer champions to participate in a statewide Information Technology Council and develop a strategic plan.

The mission of an employer-led Michigan IT Council is to connect, coordinate and convene employers, educators and IT collaboratives to establish a collective voice ensuring a robust IT talent pipeline for Michigan.

The state’s IT industry cluster has seen a 25% increase in employment since 2009 and “is projected to see double-digit growth through 2026” according to the 2019 Michigan IT Workforce Analysis.

Interested employers will be asked to attend and participate in two to four meetings in 2020 to develop a strategic plan.

If you know of an employer who would be interested in this opportunity and acting as a founding member of the Michigan IT Council,
please contact Michelle Cordano, LEO-WD Talent Development Liaison at cordanom@michigan.gov or 517-643-3459.

​ATTENTION: Due to the current Coronavirus situation, the Tech248 MeetUps have been postponed until further notice, Thank you.
