The Greater Nashville Technology Council (NTC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to growing Middle Tennessee’s technology industry. The NTC Ambassador Board is a group of technology professionals and enthusiasts that help the NTC achieve this mission. We support this mission by adding our perspectives on initiatives and by volunteering our time.
Think of the NTC Ambassador Board as the NTC’s “junior” board, supporting efforts identified by the “big” NTC Board. We’re a flexible volunteer workforce and think-tank that dedicates time outside of our regular jobs to help the NTC make Middle Tennessee the best place for technologists to live and work.
If you are passionate about this mission, we need YOUR help! Apply to become a member of the NTC Ambassador Board today!

The ideal Ambassador…
Admission to NTC events
$200 per year membership fee if accepted into the Ambassador Board program
Are there any dues?
Yes. There is a $200 per year membership fee for each Ambassador. This provides a budget for any costs we incur
What are the in-person commitments?
We strive to hold the quarterly Ambassador Board meetings in-person after core business hours. All other meetings, such as NTC committee meetings or Ambassador task forces, are typically virtual.
Why does the NTC Ambassador Board exist?
The Nashville Tech Council has a small but mighty dedicated staff that coordinates multiple efforts across the organization. The NTC also has the “big” NTC Board, comprised of seasoned executives representing the many technology companies operating in Middle Tennessee. We believe there is a gap between these two groups that the Ambassador Board can fill. We are technologists earlier in our career compared to the NTC Board members. We bring ideas and perspectives, as well as help the NTC staff plan and execute their efforts.
Does my employer have to be an NTC member?
No. Your employer does not need to be an NTC member. We hope through your participation, you can help us convince your employer to join the cause!
How are we organized?
After induction to the NTC Ambassador Board program, we self-organize into leadership roles and task forces, pending approval of the NTC Ambassadors Liaison and NTC President. Currently, we nominate and vote on an Ambassador President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Task forces are formed as initiatives are identified and are led by an Ambassador.
What is the term length?
Each term is 2 years.
What does it mean to be an Ambassador to an NTC member company?
Many companies that are members of the NTC do not utilize the full NTC benefits available to them. The NTC Staff will work with the Ambassador Board to identify these companies. As Ambassadors, we will work with the member companies’ points of contacts to meet with their staff and drive better engagement. Marketing materials, contacts, and talking points will be provided. You will also form a critical feedback loop with employees of the member, listening to their ideas and concerns, and reporting back to the NTC Ambassador Board so we can help the NTC improve. You can be an Ambassador to your own company.
How do I share a lead of a company that is not already a member of the NTC?
Hundreds of new companies a year choose Middle Tennessee as the place to start or grow their business. As Ambassadors, we help the NTC identify these companies. We pass on a point of contact to the NTC Staff and they take it from there!
What is the application process?
We will accept applications through October 21, 2022. Interviews will be scheduled in October and November, with final decisions announced by December 8, 2022.
