The CompTIA Federal and State Emerging Technologies Committee supports new and emerging technology platforms through impactful policies creating an advantageous policy environment that allows emerging technology platforms to mature at both the Federal and State level.
At the federal and state level, CompTIA provides daily interaction with government officials, staffers, and the Administration to help provide a nurturing environment for emerging technologies. We send out regular emails requesting feedback when priority bills are introduced and hold calls when necessary.
The Emerging Technologies Committee holds regular webinars on issues of key importance to the community.
The Emerging Technologies Committee has held a series of ongoing briefings to the Congressional Technology Staff Association (CTSA) on key issues. The CTSA is an association of over 150 congressional staffers that have technology issues in their portfolio.
Emerging Tech Legislative Tracker
CompTIA tracks both the federal and state legislative and regulatory environment, providing the very latest on bills and regulations that impact emerging technology.
CompTIA will keep committee members updated on the very latest events that are relevant to industry.
