Technology Executives Roundtable (TER) is an association of Atlanta Technology Executives. TER provides CEOs, CFOs, CTOs and general managers a forum to share, challenge and test their ideas through candid talk about complex issues.

Monthly meetings for TER feature speakers and panels of local and national experts covering topics such as strategic alliances, crisis management, non-conventional financing, M&A, intellectual property protection and other issues of interest to senior executives intent on company growth.

TER events are normally held during the third week of each month (usually on Tuesday) at City Club of Buckhead (3343 Peachtree Road NE, East Tower, Suite 1850). Networking begins at 7:00 a.m., and the program concludes at 9:00 a.m. Upcoming events and a link to register can be found here.

In addition to having a unique forum of dynamic programs and roundtables with C-suite peers at a discounted monthly meeting rate, TER members also receive exclusive access to

  • The full, one-of-a-kind report from our annual Atlanta Technology Executive Compensation Survey
  • An archive of audio recordings of past meetings
  • TER Membership Directory
  • Members-only LinkedIn TER Group

The Technology Executive Roundtable offers four membership categories designed to create an environment where members can share, challenge and test their ideas freely within a unique peer group. The membership categories are as follows: Executive Members, Scaling Members, Serial Entrepreneur Members and Investor Members.

Membership requires nomination by a TER member in good standing, completion of an application, approval by the Board and payment of the annual membership fee, which includes the cost of all meetings.

You can read more about our membership levels & fees to join here. If you are interested in becoming a member of TER and believe that you meet the membership qualifications, please complete the member application here.

TER's monthly meetings qualify for 1 (one) CPE credit hour per meeting.  CPE Verification of Attendance forms can be picked up at the Registration table.

Members are encouraged to invite guests to attend TER meetings who meet the membership qualifications. These prospective members can attend a meeting by paying a guest fee of $50 per meeting. Paying the guest fee before joining is a requirement to attend future meetings. 

TER members who leave their company and are in transition may continue to attend meetings for a six-month period by paying the guest fee per meeting attended.

Current members must qualify on their annual renewal date. The Board reserves the right to grandfather existing members and make exceptions to new members as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion. Individuals with a career that includes multiple successful executive positions within the technology field may be granted an individual membership as a serial entrepreneur, subject to constraints on the number of such memberships allowed at any one time.

TER currently has nearly 120 members, and a full list of member companies can be found here.

The Technology Executives Roundtable (TER) was originally founded by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) as a company strategy to stay aware of local technology entrepreneurial endeavors across the country.

In 1993, DEC eliminated TER from its plans; however, through the leadership of local sponsors and leaders in the technology community, TER in Atlanta incorporated as an independent non-profit organization. A list of past TER presidents can be found here.

“I joined TER a little over 2 years ago when I first moved to Atlanta from Orlando.  The quality of the individuals associated with TER and the content presented each month formed the foundation of my professional network while obtaining valuable, relevant information for my business.”

David Brinkman
President & CEO

"TER offers great networking – I am truly sitting with my peers at every meeting. In addition, the content is very relevant and valuable to me and my business."
