Region 5 congratulates Region President Larry Schmitz for being named In Business Wisconsin's Professional of the Week. Click here for the full story about one of the great leaders in our industry.

Larry has been actively involved in AITP for over 41 years! He served in a variety of positions through his career with a number of AITP chapters including the Southeast Wisconsin (which now includes the former Racine-Kenosha chapter that Larry stated with) and his current chapter, Northeastern Wisconsin. Larry was the AITP Association President in 1999. But his service to the IT industry did not stop there. He has been a tireless supporter of Information Technology certification through the CCP designation of the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP). See this newsletter article about certification, which is as true today as it was when it was first published. He later served as President of the Foundation for Information Technology Education. He has been the Region 5 President the last 3 years. This year, Larry is also the Chair of the AITP Region President's Council.

Larry's AITP/DPMA involvement had a WHOLE lot to do with his career success. Larry tells us that being part of a "class professional IT association” helped bootstrap his career. His "CDP" (now called "CCP”) got Larry the job with Price Waterhouse. That dovetailed into Larry running their Wisconsin consulting practice, and so on. It was those accomplishments that got Larry into Marquis's Who's Who in America, which is how In Business-Wisconsin heard of Larry.

Larry tells Information Executive that "That is a "What do I get for my $105 AITP dues?" story. How about one hell of a career? Thank you AITP!!”

Congratulation Larry!
