Monthly TER meetings 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.
The goal of TER is to provide a unique forum for members to share, challenge and test their ideas freely so that they are better equipped to run their individual companies. With that goal in mind, the following membership qualifications serve to create that environment by properly selecting the peer group to participate.
There are four TER membership categories. Please review the requirements to see if you’re eligible to join TER.
Membership requires nomination for membership 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.
If you are interested in becoming a member of TER and believe that you meet the membership qualifications, please complete the member application.
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.
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. 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. 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.
“I get as much from the TER monthly programs as I do from meeting the representatives of the member companies. There is so much experience in that group that together, I think we can solve any problem. The monthly meeting is on my do not miss list.”
