About the IT Council

The Information Technology Council (JITC) offers a forum for IT professionals to exchange information, explore new ideas, develop partnerships, educate the IT community, and contribute to the success of members.  The group facilitates the annual Tech Coast Conference, which brings the latest technology and speaker expertise to Jacksonville. Monthly breakfast and happy hour meetings offer a fantastic opportunity to network with others in the IT field as well as learn about emerging technologies.
