The AITP Region 5 Fall 2014 Meetings will be held September 17-18, 2014 at the Holiday Inn in Appleton, WI. We thank the Northeastern Wisconsin (NEW) Chapter for hosting this event.

This set of meetings (the Chapter Seminars and Dinner Meeting and the Region Board meeting and the first ever Student Leadership Summit) promise to have a great deal of content for all AITP members-professional and student.


Attention Region 5 Student Members:

Besides all the educational opportunities this conference provides, and the networking opportunities, AND the information you will take away from the Student Leadership Summit in terms of how to grow and manage your student chapter, the Northeastern Wisconsin (NEW) Chapter has "sweetened the pot”:

  • The NEW chapter will award $250 to the AITP Student Chapter with the greatest attendance/participation at the conference.
  • The NEW chapter will hold a drawing for $250 for one lucky Student AITP Member who attends the conference and completes the conference evaluation form.
  • All Region 5 AITP student members attending the Student Leadership Summit will be eligible to submit their application for a Sherry Anklam Memorial Award to offset their college cost—EVEN if they are not members of one of the NEW sponsored student chapters.

The activities start with a choice of three excellent seminars late Wednesday afternoon, Sept 17 followed by a great dinner and a presentation by the CIO of Breakthrough Fuel.

After the dinner meeting, Region 5 will host all attendees at our Region Hospitality Suite for networking and relaxing.

Thursday morning starts with the Region 5 Board Meeting, where, among other things, we will be kicking off a new concept for chapters to be able to share "good ideas".

This will be followed by the first ever Region 5 Student Leadership Summit. We always talk about doing more to help our student chapters, their leaders and their faculty advisors. This session, led by Carrie Drephal, the dynamo president of the NEW Chapter and a former student member herself, is a MUST for student chapter leaders, their faculty advisors AND the board members of the professional chapter that sponsors those student chapters. Don't miss this one.

The Northeastern Wisconsin Chapter will provide the refreshments during the Thursday morning meetings.
