Board of Directors


Governance & Board of Directors


AITP is governed by the elected Officers of President, Executive Vice President/President Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and Immediate Past President as well as a Board of Directors. In addition there is also an Executive Director and Professional Staff to support and further AITP's mission and to carry out day-to-day operations.

Regions: The Association is divided into geographic Regions. Region governing boards are comprised of liaisons from each of the Chapters within the Region and an elected set of officers. Regions are combined to form Districts. Two members of the Association Board of Directors are elected from each of the four, Eastern, Southern, Central, and Western, Districts.

Chapters: Most members belong to Chapters, which provide unique opportunities for informal but direct contact with other IT Professionals. Chapters are governed by elected officers and directors. Some members are not affiliated with a chapter and are members-at-large, enjoying the benefits of AITP through the web and at conferences and other educational offerings.

Committees:To further the mission of AITP, there are a number of association committees and task forces. They offer members not only the opportunity to build new benefits and services for the IT industry but also the unique opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and network with IT Professionals across the association.

For more information, please see our 2014 Organization Chart (coming soon) showing the various Committees and Task Forces in each of the Service Areas, DPMA Articles of Incorporation, Amendment to Change Name to AITP and our IRS Non-Profit Status Determination Letter.
