    CTO & Engineering Executive Forum: Social Media Inside the Engineering Department – Is it safe?

    Morton's Steakhouse

    At the October 20th Technology and IP Event, Fostering Innovation Through Social Media: Using it Openly But Wisely, speakers will present how organizations are using social media to drive innovation from a business development perspective. At the November 2nd CTO and Engineering Executive Forum we will continue to explore what social media looks like on the inside of an organization, specifically in the engineering department.

    We know that social media has proven effective in outbound marketing strategies, but is the creation and exchange of user-generated content safe in an environment of innovation and trade secrets? Do you protect against social media? Do you cultivate social media? Or both?

    Join your peers for dinner and a forum discussion of the possibilities for creating a culture of innovation by using social media.

    Cost to Attend: $95 TechAmerica Members, $125 Nonmembers To Register: TechAmerica, (503) 624-4871

    TechAmerica: CTO & Engineering Executive Forum: Reinvention and the Role of the Engineering Executive

    Morton's Steakhouse

    How are you and your company going to come out of this recession? What has changed during the past two years? Where are things headed for your business? Companies are reinventing themselves in a variety of ways - through diversification of products and markets; by shifting more manufacturing and sourcing to Asia; by hiring or contracting for staff whose skills weren’t even mentioned in job descriptions at the turn of the century (10 years ago!) With all of this change, what’s happening to the engineering jobs in Portland, and how does the role of the Engineering Executive need to change and adapt?

    This dinner forum is available to CTO and Engineering Executives from member and nonmember companies.

    Thank you Marger Johnson & McCollom PC for sponsoring this event.
