The Mass. High Technology Council (MHTC) is the only cross-sector advocacy group of CEOs and Senior Executives organized to address the key interests of technology CEOs:
- Access to talent
- Cost of doing business
- Competitive business climate and strong quality of life
- Access to innovation
- An effective, non-partisan voice on the issues
- Partnering with a performance-driven organization
- Ability to engage with and learn from other CEOs
Please take a few minutes to view a brief video highlighting our 2015 Annual Meeting featuring Governor Baker and a demonstration of a unique tool that aggregates key competitiveness data in one place: the Massachusetts Technology, Talent and Economic Reporting System (MATTERS).
New England Tech Vets (NETV) is another noteworthy initiative of the Council. It is the product of a successful collaboration between Monster Government Solutions, the Mass. High Technology Council, and our clinical advisor, Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program. New England Tech Vets connects Post 9/11 Veterans across the country with technology and other employers and jobs throughout New England and, when required, provides medical support and counseling to heal the “invisible wounds” of war as veterans re-enter the civilian workforce.
Among recent Council accomplishments enabled by our engaged membership:
- In 2013, we led the successful strategy to repeal the so-called Massachusetts “Tech Tax” which would have imposed $250 million to $400 million in new state tax costs on Massachusetts innovators - many small businesses.
- In 2005, at the request of U. S. Senator Ted Kennedy and Governor Mitt Romney, we created and led the successful strategy to preserve the $3 billion economic impact of Hanscom Air Force Base and the Natick Army Solider Systems Center on the Massachusetts economy.
Our mission focus is supplemented by a continuing series of meaningful and relevant CEO Roundtables featuring small-group discussions with elected federal and state political leaders and candidates; military leaders, education leaders, and subject experts on topics of interest to our members.
