Update from Partners and Affiliates, New Dell Discount and More!

Posted by: Vincent Luciani, Association Director

2013 was a very busy year for the Partners and Affiliates team, especially the last 6 months, where we laid the foundation for many new programs and services that we hope you’ll find beneficial. As 2014 rushes in, the Partners and Affiliates team would like to update our members on our activity and let you know what you can expect going forward.

Firstly, who are we? Our team consists of 5 dedicated individuals; myself and Doug Fogle, both 2014 Association Directors. Jennifer Ellen, Stephen Flowers and Al Strong. We collectively review all email inquiries that come into the Association. Some are politely declined, but those that seem to offer a good value to our members are then discussed among the team. Of those, we may determine that some requests are best handled at the local level, and are therefore sent either to the region or local chapter. For the remaining ones, we generally have a series of follow-up conversations with the vendor to better understand their offering, and to negotiate the most favorable terms for AITP. We seek to identify partnerships that bring value to you, and improve AITP overall.

Finally, those of us on the team utilize our catalog of personal and business contacts and vendors to seek out and formulate partnerships.

Most recently, we've formed partnerships with Dell Computer, The Society of Information Management (SIM), and The SANS Institute.

With Dell, AITP members can shop online by visiting If you prefer to speak to a sales representative, you may also call 1-800-695-8133 and reference Member ID: GS134573718.

AITP members will receive a $500 discount from the normal attendance fee.

We're also close to announcing an interesting partnership with a major luxury auto manufacturer, a disaster recovery services company as well as a few others to be finalized shortly.
