Why A High Technology Council? “Because We Needed One.”
The Massachusetts High Technology Council distinguishes itself from traditional employer organizations by specializing in complex, multi-year public policy strategies in support of conditions that protect or enhance a strong Massachusetts economy.
“One of the great strengths of the High Tech Council is that it has not fallen into the classical trap of ‘self-interest.’ Since it’s inception, the High Tech Council has stood for the well-being of the citizens of the Commonwealth. Our efforts have been aimed toward cooperative and constructive solutions to complex public policy problems.”
– D.V. d’Arbeloff

1980-1985, Chairman & CEO, Millipore Corporation
The Council advocates for the high technology economy in Massachusetts by providing members with opportunities to connect with peers, and by facilitating cooperative relationships and results-focused strategies among senior leaders from industry, finance, academia and government.
Due to the belief that success is only achieved by a personal commitment from the heads of member companies, the High Tech Council has helped position the technology industry as a critically important component of the Massachusetts economy representing one of the most innovative and promising opportunities for continued investment and job creation in the Commonwealth.
