Individual Memberships 

New to our membership offering are the professional and student memberships. We have identified the need to allow those who are not associated with a company the opportunity to take advantage of all Technology First offers. These memberships are reserved for the rare instance of a professional who is not associated with a company or an individual who may be a consultant. The student membership is reserved for undergraduate students who are pursuing careers in a technology field.  Once a professional joins a company or a student graduates, the individual should join under their company.


Who You Are: Anyone who is not employed by a corporate or associate member. You may own your own company and you're the only employee, be a consultant, or may be unemployed. 

Membership Dues: $250 annually

Company-Registered Member

Who You Are: An employee of a company that is already a registered member of Technology First. 

Membership Dues: As a member of Technology First, we want you to take full advantage of your membership benefits, including providing direct access to Technology First for your employees. 

Email this link to your tech employees to let them know about your membership with Technology First and assist them in signing up for our e-newsletter, events, and peer resource groups. 


Who You Are: You are a full-time undergraduate student pursuing a career in a technology field. Note: This is not intended for individuals who are otherwise fully employed and pursuing a degree part-time.  

Membership Dues: Contact Melissa Cutcher, Executive Director, to learn more.
