ITServe Chapter President’s message

Prasad Maganti

New England Chapter President

IT Serve

I’m Prasad Maganti, President/CEO of Maganti IT Resources LLC, and I also currently serve as the New England ITServe Chapter President. With a diverse background as a software developer, IT services professional, visionary entrepreneur, and investor, I have held several executive positions overseeing operations, product development, and marketing, primarily focusing on startup growth.

When I assumed leadership as the New England ITServe Chapter President, the community had about 69 members, eagerly working towards one common goal, making a positive impact, and fostering strong connections. 

As the Chapter President, my new vision includes securing renewals from the past year, expanding the chapter’s membership to 100 individuals, and providing valuable workshops for our members. The Chapter will focus on community engagement, networking, and creating business opportunities. Diversifying membership and adding women leaders are among our priorities. We also aim at eliminating misconceptions about the H1B program by educating legislators through the PAC team. We will focus on lobbying with the lawmakers to amend laws and continue to fight the unjust regulations and unfair interpretations of the USCIS against non-immigrant workers. 

To achieve progress and inclusivity within the Chapter, we have come up with the ‘Travel Together’ program and initiated monthly workshops to foster strong connections. We have established a Business Development Advisory Board and are conducting regular core team meetings. To provide networking opportunities, we organized the “East Coast Regional Startup and Sports Meet” in Connecticut. 

We will continue to voice out issues that are important to all the members and believe that together, we can overcome challenges, create a sense of inclusion, and make a meaningful impact within our Chapter.
