Home » TechTables

Since our founding in 2013, T4A has hosted nearly 100 TechTables with a distinguished bipartisan group of Convening Guests. There’s no lobbying or partisanship, but a discussion focusing on the priorities that each guest brings to the conversation. T4a provides small forums where participants can freely exchange ideas and public leaders can leave with relationships and ideas they can use back home.
