  • A Few Words from Barbara Kamm, CEO – October 2013

    One of my favorite parts of working at Tech CU is how involved we are with our local community. I’d like to share with you just a few of the exciting happenings over the past few months and what we’ve got on tap through November.

    In early September, Tech CU was a sponsor of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s Education Summit, which brought together educators, elected official and private sector leaders to discuss issues such as emerging technology in education, common core standards and teacher evaluations. This is a topic so important to me and to the future of both our economy and Silicon Valley. I was given the honor of introducing a panel on local innovation in Pre-K through 12th grade education — what a fascinating area with much more to come! Tech CU was also a sponsor of the inaugural C2SV Technology Conference in San Jose, which brought together key speakers discussing innovation, entrepreneurship and disruptive technology. I was fortunate here as well to present a panel on women entrepreneurs and their funding sources.

    In late October, Tech CU is sponsoring and partnering with the Social Venture Partner’s Conference on Philanthropy. This will bring together high-end technology leaders and philanthropists to talk about creating smart and effective social change (and the best ways to fund it).

    And, don’t forget to sign up for the Turkey Trot, which is held on Thanksgiving Day with approximately 28,000 people participating! Tech CU will have a team of employees, family members, and friends out to run and support our local food banks, children’s health and affordable housing.
