  • TXPEG is a channel for rapid, ad hoc assessment from different organizations with technologies we are all dealing with. It’s a low cost, high value group where IT leaders freely exchange relevant experiences. –Weldon “Butch” Leonardson, SVP & CIO, BECU

  • This is a great group of individuals. I learn a lot just talking to them individually. The monthly round tables are good but the rolodex of contacts you get is great. I have made use of this in several ways including learning about experiences of others and hiring good candidates: If I save a finder’s fee (usually 20%) the investment for me in TXPEG has been a good ROI. It is hard to put a $$ around the learning but I think it is well more than the annual cost of TXPEG.CJ Venkataraman, CIO, Intellectual Ventures

  • TXPEG provides an opportunity to meet with peers facing similar challenges and bouncing ideas with them.  It also provides an exchange of experience on solutions and vendors and an ability to learn new topics and trends.Michel Danon, CIO, Sound Transit

  • Many points of view … diverse industry representation, diverse company size, diverse backgrounds of the people, and top-notch expert speakers combined with professional facilitation makes each session something I look forward to. One reason I’ve been a member for years is the personal connection I can make with each person that stand the test of time.

  • I enjoy the discussions on technology issues, local company issues, area issues and what others are doing with regards to personnel.–John Meersman, CIO, National Frozen Foods Corporation

  • My membership in TXPEG allows me to get a different perspective from organizations on how they approach issues of similar interest or consideration. Discussions among your peers stimulate thoughts of how others approach issues also encountered in King County. It is an opportunity to vet challenges and issues in order to obtain thoughts from others that can assist in representing King County in determining how to best address or resolve the challenges.–David Martinez, CIO, King County

  • TXPEG provides a facilitated forum to discuss issues that are in front of many, if not all its members. Targeted topics like strategies for the year, cost containment, technology trend hype vs. realities. It provides another means of networking with other senior IT leaders beyond the TXPEG sessions. I also value the annual meeting with CEO, CFO, and Sales peer groups. The time commitment is minimal. The hard dollar investment matches the value received.–Troy Olson-Blair, CIO, Information Technology, Symetra Financial
