Our mission is to create authentic relationships that go beyond traditional networking to benefit our members personally and professionally.

“Because Connections Matter,” the Media+Tech Collective is a 501c(6) non-profit, open industry association that is dedicated to bringing together members from throughout the businesses of video entertainment and technology – including broadband, telephony, commercial services and more – with networking opportunities, educational programs, and social events. By providing affordable and engaging programs and sharing valuable industry information and contacts with industry peers, MTC members stay better informed and fulfill opportunities to become impactful leaders in their respective organizations. The MTC is using 2021 to phase in full accessibility for those with disabilities and special needs.

The Rocky Mountain Cable Association was rebranded to become the Media+Tech Collective of the Rockies in January 2021 to meet the changing needs of its members in an evolving industry. Industry members, companies, vendors and support services in all areas of the industry (video, streaming, data, voice, mobile, IOT, web services, etc) in all functional areas (sales, marketing, product, IT, HR, software development, finance, and more) are welcome and supported by MTC. The RMCA was established in January 2012 as a local successor to the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing Rocky Mountains chapter (CTAMRM). With the evolution of RMCA to the Media+Tech Collective the organization remains committed to its foundation of networking, education and giving back to the community.
