Appropriate title I would say and if your wondering what I am talking about; read on. As some people are aware, at least those of you that follow me on Twitter, I actually was nominated (and accepted) to the ITANS board of directors. To create change the best way is from within, and, I am going to damn well try and make some changes- FOR THE BETTER.
So that being said, I’ll move on to a more interesting subject- not really, still ITANS.
I ran an informal survey on Tech East surrounding the technology sector in Nova Scotia and I really wasn’t surprised in the responses. Some of them were:
- People are looking for better programs
- Improved leadership and representation for the industry
- Government lobbying
And the list goes on and on and on
Over the course of this informal survey I have had people actually ask what ITANS did. It’s true, there are people who have no idea what this association is suppose to accomplish. Others thought they only did a golf tournament.
I think the first step on the road to self help is to build a brand- obviously if people working in this industry think ITANS is a golf tournament the association is not working properly. Second step, think outside the box, I know that is cliche, but something new and effective needs to actually be done.
I agree with almost all the feedback I have received, however, I am still curious as to what people want to see from this Industry association? Comment on this blog entry or email me. I want to know what you want to see ITANS do to improve the industry in Nova Scotia.
