How To Start A Chapter

Chapters are the heart of AITP and provide opportunities for networking with other IT professionals, continuous learning programs, involvement in community activities and more. If there is not a local AITP chapter in your area, you may start one. A minimum of 10 members is required and individuals must be willing to serve as officers of the Chapter. . There are documents listed below that are required for starting a Professional or Student Chapter.
