Unemployed Membership Initiative – not available online
We have renewed our very popular unemployed membership program, commencing 9/1/11 through 8/31/12, and expanded it to include the following reasons for being temporarily out of the workforce:
- Unemployment (laid off, contract ended, company closure)
- Medical leave (health or disability prevents gainful employment)
- Family leave (left the workforce to care for family members full time)
- Education leave (enrolled full time in a formal education program)
The discount of $50 reduces Association dues to $55. Chapter and Region dues (if applicable) are not discounted and must be paid. To qualify for this discount, a person must 1) have been previously employed in the IT profession and 2) is currently unemployed. Members who previously took advantage of this Unemployed Membership Discount will also be eligible for this program as long as they are able to validate that they are still unemployed.
To request this discount or get more information, contact: email@example.com.
Enterprise Membership Program – not available online.
This program is designed for organizations who have, or desire to have, 3 or more of their IT staff, nationwide, belong to AITP. It offers significant discounts on a sliding scale (3 to 9, 10 or more) to organizations that are willing to offer AITP memberships to their IT employees in order to enhance their technical and management skills at a very affordable price.
More details can be found at the Classes of Membership page (http://www.aitp.org/?page=MembershipType). To apply for an Enterprise Membership, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student to Professional Membership – not available online
This Membership is ONLY available to graduating AITP student members. Upon graduation, students are able to join AITP with all the rights and privileges of a Professional Member at a significantly discounted rate (plus professional chapter and Region dues where applicable). AITP students are the lifeblood of our Association and Chapters need to make every effort to convert their student chapter members to Professional Membership as soon as they graduate.
More details can be found at the Classes of Membership page (http://www.aitp.org/?page=MembershipType). Please email email@example.com for more information.
Student Member Dues Reduced!! – apply online
Effective August 1, 2011 student member dues have been reduced to $30/year from $35. Students, enrolled in an IT related major at a university or college who are looking for careers within the IT field will find joining an AITP Student Chapter a step in the right direction. Besides the sharing of ideas with other IT students and faculty members on campus, they will be able to hear speakers on current technical and management topics at their own Student Chapter meetings as well as participate in their sponsoring Professional Chapter meeting.
It is never too early to start networking within our industry, hearing the views of IT expert guest speakers, working on relevant projects and attending our National Collegiate Conference; where they get to test their skills and knowledge against the "best of the best" in terms of other IT students from across the country, AND participate in the Job Fair--to say nothing of the networking with fellow IT students from colleges and universities from all over the US. It also provides the opportunity to apply for various scholarships that are ONLY available to AITP Student Members..

Faculty Advisor Membership Initiative – not available online
This initiative provides a $50 reduction in dues off our regular association professional dues, bringing it to $55/year plus applicable chapter and regional dues. To be eligible, a faculty member must agree to serve as faculty advisor to a student chapter for a year and provide some substantiation from their school regarding their role as faculty advisor.
This initiative will not be available online. For more more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
