The NJTC invites its members to participate as panelists and moderators for upcoming events. If you or a colleague in your company would like to participate by speaking at or hosting an event, please contact NJTC Staff, for more information.


Chief Executive Officers

The CEO Forum is exclusively for leaders of technology and life science companies offering them the opportunity to share best (and worst) practices, knowledge and problem solving in a relaxed environment. Typically an overall topic is selected and presented by one or more executives who lead the discussion.

Topic suggestions are welcome. Send them to Poonam Balani.
