ST. GEORGE, Utah - + Video – Dixie Techs have convened once a month to talk about the latest movements and growth in technology for over a decade in St. George. The meetings are open to anyone in the field or helping to promote the technology industry in southern Utah.

February’s guest speaker was DSU Dean of Science & Technology Eric Pedersen. The consensus by the group of about 100 people was to encompass an area along the I-15 corridor from Logan, Utah,  south to Las Angeles. Business operators and educators hope that future planning and growth in this field will not only provide the talent and training needed, but also the jobs to go with them. Part of their awareness plan is to spread the word to mothers of future “techies.”
