Dave Archer earlier this month announced his retirement, effective mid-2022, from his role as president and CEO of NCET, Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology.

“I’m honored to have served NCET for 16 years and to have built NCET into a thriving organization that serves the evolving educational and networking needs of Northern Nevada’s business and technology community,” Archer said in a Jan. 5 press release.

Archer joined NCET in 2006 as executive director and was promoted to President/CEO in 2011.

During his tenure, NCET introduced a membership program and numerous new programs and events, including the annual NCET Tech Awards and NCET Small Business Expo, in addition to the monthly Biz Café lecture series and recurring Biz Bite and Special Event luncheons.

Today, NCET — aided by a 30-person working board — has nearly 600 members and produces 36 events each year, attracting more than 3,300 attendees annually, according to the release.

“As our local business and technology community continues to grow and prosper, I’m confident that NCET will continue to develop innovative programs to meet their expanding needs,” Archer said.

The NCET Board has formed a committee with the goal of naming Archer’s successor by mid-2022. Go to to learn more.
