Who We Are
A professionally managed, vendor-free, community of 13,000 technology leaders from the world’s most innovative and successful organizations.
In 1980, Ron Haberkorn founded The North American Computer Exchange to help companies purchase and sell used technology hardware. Later, NOREX evolved to serve as a key information resource for technology leaders. During the rapid adoption of technology in the 1990’s, organizations turned to NOREX as the leading source for “real-world” insight when implementing new technology. Today, members of NOREX leverage peer-tested solutions to make better decisions and accelerate their technology projects.
What We Do
Help technology professionals make better decisions and avoid costly mistakes. Our vendor-free community and suite of services delivers proven solutions and best practices, including:
WebForums are interactive call-in events that allow you to discuss trending topics without leaving your ofﬁce. Moderated, focused, and no vendors present.
Large Group Roundtables are offered in 1 day (regional) and 3 day (international) formats. Grow by sharing successes and failures on trending topics. This is honest, personal, marketing-free collaboration at its best.
Leadership Luncheons are local groups of industry peers who gather to discuss solutions for a few hours over lunch. Validate ideas while growing your local peer network. As always, the topics are participant-driven and the discussion is moderated.
Select Workshops and Roundtables (Exclusive for Fortune/Forbes companies) Experience single and multi-day events focused on sharing successes and failures on topics submitted by participants. Enjoy honest, diverse, informal, and marketing-free collaboration (NO vendor participation or sponsorship is permitted). Event participation is included with membership. Ask how you can earn free lodging and transportation.
Networking and Research Assistance with the help of a dedicated NOREX team member. This Information Manager will save you time by expanding your access to strategic thought leaders and solutions. Think of them as a well-connected extension of your staff.
Direct Connect is the private logged-in member forum to exponentially expand your direct access to IT peers. Initiate or join conversations of interest, gain actionable insights from multiple sources, and receive helpful notiﬁcations based on your preferences and objectives.
Document Repository containing member-created policies and procedures to save you research and writing time. These include security standards, business continuity plans, vendor evaluations, RFPs, SLAs, strategic plans, job descriptions, etc.
WebForum Transcripts and Poll Results are valuable snapshots of industry trends and how peers are dealing with current IT issues and challenges.
Total member/customer satisfaction is the reason we exist, and we go the "extra mile" on their behalf. All of our energy and enthusiasm is focused on exceeding expectations.
To Team Members:
A stable family-friendly environment is a critical element of our present and future success. Employment fairness and stability outrank profit as our primary goal. Adequate profit (not maximum) will result. Financial performance will vary from quarter to quarter and year to year. It is the obligation of management/ownership to "flex" as required to achieve maximum employment security.
Vendor appreciation and fairness is critical to a predictable future for our vendors and NOREX. We pay vendor bills before they are due. We do not "vendor hop". Instead, we value long-term relationships of loyalty and service.
To Country and Community:
We are deeply thankful to our country and community for fostering an environment where NOREX can thrive. We show our appreciation through positive involvement in the community and annual charitable giving of over 5% of profits before tax.
