IT Services and Contractor Update Newsletters
Spring 2012 Issues released April 24, 2012
Our Client and Contractor Newsletters are available to help you impress your clients and consultants, and expand your market reach through a professionally written and designed quarterly newsletter that you can customize with your logo.
The IT Contractor Update is specifically for IT consultants and the other for your clients. While the IT Contractor Update is modeled after the IT Services Update (which is intended for clients), the content is slightly different.
We hope that you will find these both of use in your branding and recruiting efforts.

Sample Social Media Policy
Released November 14, 2011
While social media, blogging and online communities have become highly effective tools in business development and recruiting, these methods of communication present a host of new legal challenges. The first step toward mitigating your risk is the implementation of an appropriate social media policy.
Toward that end, TechServe Alliance commissioned the development of a sample Social Media and Blogging Policy. Please remember this policy is provided for general informational purposes only and is not to be considered legal advice. Owners and executives should consult their legal counsel to ensure the sample policy addresses their specific situation.
Launched September 15, 2011
The new online M&A portal allows owners of member companies to post listings expressing their interest in either buying an IT services firm or selling their company. For listings posted on the "Sell" slide, companies can post a profile of their firm anonymously. Firms interested in buying can post a listing of the types of firms they wish to buy.
TechServe developed this portal so owners of member firms can communicate their interest in buying or selling an IT services firm to a broad audience of prospective member buyers and sellers - enhancing the efficiency to the process and filling a void.

Model Letters - H-1B Petitions
Announced by email: November 22, 2010
With the assistance of immigration counsel, TechServe Alliance developed two model letters for use with the H-1B visa petition process. The first letter is a model client letter. The second letter is a model response to a typical Request for Evidence (RFE) based on the employer-employee relationship and the Neufeld Memo. Please remember these are only model letters; your facts and circumstances may differ and your response should be adjusted accordingly.
Members may access these letters in the Model Letters: H-1B Petitions Library on TechServe Connect, TechServe’s members-only, online social network available through the TechServe Alliance members-only website.*
