The Carroll Technology Council was conceived in 2001 by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce to assist businesses and the community with their technology needs. As the Tech Council matured, the need for businesses to congregate and share with like-minded peers became apparent. The Carroll Technology Council became an independent non-profit organization in January, 2004.
Since its inception, the Carroll Technology Council has developed many new programs that benefit the county as a whole, especially area small businesses. Our focus has been on facilitating the development of technology expertise, building relationships between member organizations, and facilitating potential business opportunities.
As a community partner, the Tech Council works diligently to bring technology to those in need. Through our TechKids and TechWorks programs, the CTC has donated computers to area youth, adults, and nonprofits. To date, we have donated over 2,800 new and refurbished computers to the community!
The Council is a trusted voice, capable of handling information requests and disseminating helpful answers. We work closely with local media and publish our own communications to reach the community with pertinent technology updates.Become A Member
March Educational Meeting

Managing Employees and their Devices
In our ever-connected world, phones and other devices constantly blur the lines between work and home life. In the workplace this can lead to a host of potential issues; on one hand, employees can be easily distracted by social media and constant personal alerts on their phones, reducing productivity. An entirely different set of problems can arise when employees want to use devices to bring work email and platforms home, as they could inadvertently create security issues that compromise business information systems. Our panelists will share personal experiences and advice on how to deal with this relatively new and ever-changing workplace dynamic.

Scott Adelman Memorial Fund
Scott M. Adelman was a founding member, former board member and committee chair of the Carroll Technology Council, but more importantly, a friend and mentor to all of us. He passed away on October 22, 2016 at the age of 53 as a result of a heart attack that he suffered earlier in the week. As an organization, we are deeply saddened by this great loss.
