Join us for a discussion about the merger of AITP and CompTIA, our speakers will be Julian Wade immediate Past President of AITP and Nancy Hammervik Executive Vice-President at CompTIA. There will be time for questions and answers as well.
Julian has been an active member of the Atlanta Chapter since 1981, and currently holds the chapter record for Perfect Attendance at regular business meetings (31 years). He recently retired from Georgia Piedmont Technical College (formerly DeKalb Tech) in Clarkston, Georgia where he was the Dean of Academic Operations. He has been involved in the IT field for more than 40 years, and has served on the Chapter Board of Directors since 1988, including serving as Chapter President in 1991. Julian was the chapter's representative to Region 7 for many years, and also served the region as Treasurer (2001-2003), Vice President (2004), and President (2005-2007).
Following several years (2010-2013) of service on the Association Board of Directors representing the Southern District, he served as Association Treasurer in 2014, as Executive Vice President in 2015, and as Association President for 2016, when he led the transition to our new partnership with CompTIA. He will continue to serve on the association’s Executive Council.
As executive president, industry relations, for CompTIA, Nancy Hammervik is responsible for elevating the association's public profile among its membership and across the IT industry. She is the principal liaison between members and the association; helps shape CompTIA member programs and association initiatives for the IT industry; and acts as an advocate on behalf of members and the broader industry.
In 2013, Ms. Hammervik led an initiative to evolve CompTIA’s membership model and grow utilization of its vast library of content. CompTIA’s “Open Access” membership model provides digital access to the vast majority of its industry insight, research and business tools to a wider audience beyond paid membership. This membership model grew CompTIA’s industry engagement from 2,000 corporate members to include more than 100,000 registered users.
In 2014, Ms. Hammervik helped to manage the integration of TechAmerica, one of the first US technology associations, into the CompTIA organization, broadening CompTIA’s membership base, strengthening its policy voice and growing its position in the public sector market space of the technology industry.
Late 2016, Ms. Hammervik led the efforts to bring AITP, a 65 year old industry professional society, under the umbrella of CompTIA member organizations and is responsible for building out a new professional association that serves aspiring students and individuals, seeking and growing IT careers.
Hammervik joined CompTIA in 2011 after a 25 year career with United Business Media’s Everything Channel, a top provider of IT channel-focused events, media, research, consulting and sales and marketing services.
Her last position with the company was senior vice president, events, where she was responsible for the company's entire global events business. She led the sales, marketing, recruitment, content and event production strategies for the events business. Her event portfolio focused on large scale, regional, community, virtual and custom events that brought together leading executives in the high tech industry. During her tenure there, she managed the integration of Gartner’s Vision Events portfolio, including Midsize Enterprise Summit and HealthCare Summit.
