Our next AITP meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 8 at Aliperti's Ristorante in Clark, NJ. Once again the Chapter is providing an insightful presentation on a 'hot' topic - Wireless Technology.

Some examples of mobile device usages include accepting payments, and tracking employees, assets and deliveries. Mr. Testa will also provide an insight to the future of wireless mobility, including new devices and usages that will benefit businesses. So join us on April 8th to discover what is happening with wireless technology. Learn how you may be able to help your company do more with wireless today by enabling your field force to be untethered from the office. THE SPEAKER ========= Jon Testa is a Business Account Manager with Sprint and has been with them for nine years.

Mr. Testa has over 15 years experience successfully applying technology to gain mobile workforce solutions involving hardware, software and services. His broad knowledge of mobile products, along with his many problem solving skills, have allowed him to successfully establish and manage major accounts for Sprint in both the public and private sector. Mr. Testa has received many honors and awards for his work at Sprint. He is originally from Somerville, NJ and is a graduate of Guilford College. PRESIDENT'S COMMENTS ================ A comment especially directed to those considering attending a Chapter meeting for the first time at Aliperti's: the cost of the meeting includes a buffet dinner and soft drinks. There is a cash bar adjacent to the meeting room. We provide a networking opportunity for over an hour before the speaker commences his presentation. Attendees are expected to have their meal during this period. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF AITP TO ATTEND THIS EVENT! Alperti's is relatively easy to get to from most areas in central NJ, which is one reason why it was selected in hopes of attracting ITers from that area to our Chapter meetings. I urge that you take advantage of the networking and educational opportunity we offer at this event. Next month the Chapter is offering a presentation on another 'hot' topic - Big Data and Business Intelligence. Please place the date on your calendar and plan to attend. It will be held at Johnston's Steak House in Roseland. FUTURE MEETINGS ============ We will continue to meet the second Tuesday of each month and will alternate sites between Aliperti's in Clark, NJ and Jim Johnston's Steak House in Roseland, NJ. Below are the meeting topics and sites we have targeted for the remaining two months of the Chapter year. The June topic is tentative and could change: May 14 - Big Data and BI - Attivio Corp - Johnston's Steak House June 10 - Panel Discussion on IT Careers, etc. - Aliperti's
