About Us

The Southern Piedmont Technology Council is a member-based organization consisting of technology companies and advocates from Southern Virginia. Since the inception, the SPTC has been an advocate and voice in stressing the importance of the need for the region to invest in technology. We have focused on serving technology-related needs of the public and private sector, and on raising the awareness to enable the region to accommodate the changing way of doing business, and to evolve with it.

Through our networking meetings, conferences, and banquets, we have aimed at building on our membership base, educating the community, facilitating discussion with, and increasing Southern Piedmont’s exposure to other parts of Virginia. Our service range encompasses Patrick, Henry, Franklin, Pittsylvania, Halifax, and Mecklenburg counties and the cities of Danville and Martinsville.
