The Computing Technology Heritage Society is dedicated to the establishment and continued support of a museum facility in Edmonton to educate, inform, and inspire the general public about the critical role computing technology has played and continues to play in the development of our society.

Computing Technology has had a profound affect on all aspects of human civilization and continues to shape our everyday lives and our future. As such, it is critically important that we preserve the history of computing technology for future generations to study and to learn from.

Just as conventional museums strive to preserve artifacts of our history for this reason, so too is it important to preserve and protect our technological artifacts. If we don't make a concerted effort to preserve paradigm-shifting, one-of-a kind computing devices from the scrap heaps of the electronic recycling plants, we will lose them and the lessons they can teach us forever!

If you have a passion for preserving our technological heritage for the benefit of future generations then come join us!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
