Strengthen your team from the top down.

BC Tech C-Councils are designed to facilitate a content-rich dialogue among technology CEOs and C-level executives to share insights, best practices, and challenges; with a goal of building better businesses.

We currently offer sector-focused C-Councils for several industry verticals, as well as functional C-Councils for those in specific executive roles within tech organizations.

How to Join

C-Councils are an exclusive Member Benefit of the BC Tech Association.

Unlike other CEO forums or executive roundtables, C-Council content is all business. Each C-Council is carefully curated to ensure that participants are in similar (but non-competitive) businesses and at similar stages of growth. This ensures a peer exchange that is specific, meaningful, and highly relevant to every member.

C-Councils are limited in size and pre-registration is required. Meeting information is sent via email prior to each session, and is only sent to those whose acceptance into the council has been confirmed.

To apply to join a C-Council, please email hello@wearebctech.com.
