Recently, April 4th – 6th, over five hundred of our I.T. leaders of tomorrow attended the 2013 AITP National Collegiate Conference (NCC) in St. Louis, Missouri. Students competed in over a dozen contests, participated in three gaming contests, attended breakout sessions, and networked with conference sponsors and professional association members. Some left with actual job offers in hands, and others expect to hear something soon.

Two $2,500 scholarships were awarded by our Diamond Sponsor Robert Half Technology. The 2012 Distinguished Information Systems Award was awarded to Dr. Joyce Currie Little, Professor Emerita, Towson University, and longtime member of the Baltimore Chapter and EDSIG. The Association, the Foundation for Information Technology Education (FITE) and the Region 5 Boards of Directors met in-person. Outstanding Student Chapter of the Year went to James Madison University. Dr. S. E. Kruck of James Madison University was recognized as the Faculty Advisor of the Year. Irene Edge of Kent State – Ashtabula was awarded the Faculty Advisor Extra Mile Award.

Thanks go to NCC Director Kevin Jetton and his NCC Committee of volunteers, including the FITE Board of Directors for a great conference. Also, we appreciate the many volunteers that pitched in and especially our sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers. Larry Friedlander, conference chair, and host chapters, Eastern Illinois University, Missouri Western State University, Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville, and the St. Louis and Capitol Professional Chapters should be applauded, too. A great time was had by all.

Congratulations to all of our contest and scholarship winners:
