Anyone else in a cycle of not getting staffed on technical engagements or roles despite having technical experience?

Despite being in a Technology Consulting practice w/ a background in cloud architecture my last 1.5 years I've been staffed on a mix of IT process improvement / IT governance projects.

My fear is I'm losing my technical ability despite my efforts to try to stay current by following multiple industry newsletters / doing the occasional at home side project.

Any advice?
