2013 NCC Highlights and Winners Circle

Posted by: Kevin Jetton, NCC Conference Coordinator


The AITP National Collegiate Conference continues to be the single largest event produced by AITP annually and the 2013 event was yet again no exception. The conference, held April 4-7, 2013 in St. Louis at the Millennium St. Louis Hotel, drew super attendance with 710 total attendees. Conference chair Larry Friedlander (a long time NCC committee and St. Louis local) was pleased not only with the numbers but also with how the four co-hosting AITP student chapters all came together and not only handled their portions of the conference but also stepped up when tasks to provide evening walking escorts to/from the conference hotel due to the unplanned and sudden accelerated room remodeling project at the Millennium Hotel!

Conference sponsors/exhibitors included returning Diamond Sponsor Robert Half Technology. Additional sponsors included State Farm, USAA, IBM, Certiport, the Foundation for Information Technology Education, COMMON, the ICCP Education Foundation, and ITsymbiotics. Additional conference exhibitors included AITP, Enterprise Holdings, FNC, ICCP, INROADS, ITSD – State of Missouri, Visa and the 2013 Region 3 Student Conference this fall in Oklahoma City wherein ALL AITP student members are invited!

Additional attendees included all the 2013 AITP association officers and board members as they were holding their board meeting in conjunction with the AITP NCC event which allowed them to mix-n-mingle with student chapter members, leaders and faculty advisor alike throughout the conference. The conference continues to deliver true value and opportunities to the AITP student & faculty and unique opportunities to hear leading IT organization speakers through keynotes and breakout sessions. The keynote panel moderated by Robert Half Technology got the event off to a huge success Friday Morning with tons of tips for obtaining that cool job in the field of IT.
Planning has already started for the 19th annual AITP National Collegiate Conference which will be in downtown Atlanta April 10-13, 2014 which is conveniently located to the World of Coke, the Georgia State Aquarium, CNN Center and more. In fact, we got treated to a video that was shot in Atlanta of the 2014 AITP NCC "Harlem Shake” which was a big hit and your conference co-hosting AITP student chapters, assisted by the Atlanta AITP professional chapter, include:
  • Chattahoochee Technical College
  • Georgia Gwinnett College

On behalf of the entire AITP NCC Committee & Volunteers, have a Great Summer and we hope to see you in Atlanta next year!
