If you are a North Carolina technology industry employer, a veteran, service member or military family member, planning to exit the military and work in the Raleigh-Durham area, then this event is for you! Learn how military veterans help bridge the IT workforce shortage in North Carolina.

Attendees will receive:
- Information about the technology landscape in Raleigh-Durham
