About the Forum

The mission of the LA CTO Forum is to foster the SoCal technology ecosystem. We believe that by helping our members to be more effective CTOs, we can have a positive impact on the ecosystem. The Forum is a vibrant, private, invite-only network of software CTOs who exchange ideas, share experiences, and help each other when needed. We conduct monthly meetings, quarterly roundtables, and discuss different business and technology topics.

FAQ

What is the LA CTO Forum?

Who can join?

Members are generally the senior most person in their organization in charge of software, data, web/mobile development.

How do I become a member?

The CTO Forum is a “give-back” organization. While there is no cost for membership, CTO Forum members “pay” for membership with their commitment to contributing to the group and to fellow members.
To become a member, there will be a brief call to discuss your company, role, key challenges and what you hope to achieve through membership. Assuming it’s a good fit, you would then be accepted as a provisional member. You will need to attend a meeting within 3 months of acceptance to become a full member.

Where/When Does the CTO Forum Meet?

Morning meetings – member-only meetings are on the second Friday of every month from 8-10AM in Santa Monica.

Evening meetings – members and VIP guests occur 6 times per year.
