State tech trade groups merge: WTIA + TechAmerica

The regional chapter of TechAmerica, an electronics industry group formerly known as AeA, has merged with the WTIA, the state trade group that was initially formed by software companies.

As a result, WTIA is gaining about 100 new members including electronics companies such as Esterline and Fluke, said Ken Myer, president and CEO of WTIA.

Myer characterized the groups’ new relationship as a partnership. WTIA members have the option of joining TecAmerica’s national oranization, which lobbies the federal government and has a presence in state capitals across the country.

Two of TechAmerica’s three Washington employees are transferring to WTIA.
