Eric Borgerding, President and CEO of the Wisconsin Hospital Association and a co-founder of the Wisconsin Healthcare Business Forum, will join the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Technology Council. The Tech Council’s executive committee unanimously approved Borgerding’s nomination to a three-year term at its June 11 meeting in Madison. The other new board member elected at the meeting is Dr. John Walz, President of the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
The Tech Council is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan advisory board to the governor, the Legislature and other parts of state government, such as the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. It produces major events such as the Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium, the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference, the Wisconsin Tech Summit, the Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest and other programming for emerging companies and investors. It is also part of the Tech Councils of North America, which promotes techbased economies in most of the 50 states, all provinces of Canada, and some states in Mexico.
