    I've never posted or created a forum but figured why not... I've become the Western region marketing manager for our company's technology industry focus and I'd like to see if any guys on here can identify the key technology organizations that would be a decent connection point for CEOs, CFOs or other tax/accounting professinals within the technology sector.

    Your insight and experience would be much appreciated!

    Hi Scothitme:

    Have you tried Linkein.com? Most of the business contacts and professional network that I have gotten is through this website. Additionally, you can post forum to questions or issues within your same sector and professionals will answer with questions. If you have then disregard.

    So, you're trying to find a place to meet qualified discussion partners, in the C-Suite, who are affiliated with technology sector companies?

    Thanks for the linked in comment. I'm looking for in person networking options for creating business relationships in the tech industry. Where do CEO, CFOs go to stay abreast of tech issues and corporate structuring? Thanks

    Certain "Project Management Institute" chapters have "Centers of Excellence" which offer "Executive Roundtable" events.

    Also, check AITP, HIMSS, IIA, and ISACA. There are also conferences that are held from time to time which cater to c-suite executives.

    The Corporate Executive Board is a good place to look as well.

    Gartner holds executive level events periodically (for CIO's)
