What’s New

The Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) – Charlotte Chapter will hold our February meeting on Wednesday, February 24, 2016.


We are excited to have Alan Fitzpatrick, COO of DC74 Data Centers and co-founder of Charlotte Hearts Gigabit, provide this month’s program. The topic will be “Gigabit Internet and The Impact on Charlotte”. Alan will talk to us about the impact Gigabit Internet can have on Charlotte for fostering entrepreneurship, attracting talent, and economic development. He will also discuss the city's efforts on Digital Inclusion, and creating a ‘Game Plan’ for how the city can leverage the new infrastructure. In addition to his COO role at DC74 and his work with Charlotte Hearts Gigabit, Alan teaches entrepreneurship at the Charlotte campus of Johnson and Wales University.

We are also pleased to have Charlotte Preparatory School host our meeting this month. Charlotte Prep is a non-profit, independent Pre-Kindergarten - 8th Grade college-preparatory school in Southeast Charlotte, where more than 400 students attend daily from throughout the region. For more than forty years Charlotte Prep has provided an exemplary educational experience founded on academic excellence, positive character, and leadership development in a diverse, inclusive community. Their program starts in Early School, where children as young as two-years-old begin their pre-school education with a Montessori-focused curriculum, then transition to 8th Grade with a more traditional curriculum starting in Kindergarten.
