AITP has several membership initiatives to help chapters recruit more members. Please read through our various programs and try to take advantage of them.

AITP is a valuable resource for any IT professional and a great investment in their own career, both now and in the future!

 

Professional Dues

The undiscounted AITP professional dues are $105 per year for the Association dues, plus applicable Chapter dues.  See the Professional Chapter Dues Guide, http://www.aitp.org/?page=ChapDuesGuide for details. 

In addition, members can be a part of the Special Interest Group for Education (EDSIG),  http://www.aitp.org/members/group.asp?id=74879 for an additional $40 per year.

There are a number of available discount programs .  See below for details. 

 

Multi-Year Professional Membership

Enjoy all the benefits of Professional membership with AITP. We have discounted the Association professional membership dues available under our multi-year membership initiative:

  • 2 years: $178 - savings of $32
  • 3 years: $252 - savings of $63
  • 5 years: $367 - savings of $158

When renewing your membership online, there will be an option for multi-year renewals. The discount is for the Association portion of dues. Chapter dues (if applicable) are not discounted and must be paid.

Questions? Email memberservices@aitp.org.

 

Unemployed Professional Membership Initiative

The very popular unemployed membership program has been extended through 12/31/2014. This initiative provides an opportunity for unemployed IT professionals to experience the educational and networking opportunities provided by our local AITP chapters. It covers the situations of:

  • 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 $35 reduces Association dues to $70. Chapter dues (if applicable) are not discounted and must be paid.

To be eligible for this discount an individuals must:

  1. Have been previously employed full-time as an IT professional. Recent graduates seeking their first full-time IT position are not eligible, however the Student to Professional (S2P) program is an even better deal for them.
  2. Be currently unemployed in the IT field. Those working part-time in IT or involved as a consultant are not eligible. Other unrelated work (for example: the Wal-Mart greeter) would not disqualify.
  3. It is not a requirement that the person be collecting unemployment benefits or severance pay, and neither would disqualify the person.
  4. It is not a requirement that the person be actively seeking work.
  5. A person who joined/renewed in prior years using the discount is eligible to renew again this year – if they are still unemployed.

An Unemployed Member Discount Application form is available by clicking on http://www.aitp.org/?page=UnemployedMbr.  This form can be found by clicking on Contact AITP or Why Join AITP in the left navigation rail and then clicking on Membership Discounts.  Existing members can also find the form by logging in, clicking on Members Only in the left navigation rail, and then clicking on Membership Discounts

Enterprise Membership Program

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.

This discount can be used anytime during the first three years following graduation or the expiration of student membership – whichever is later.

Chapter and Region dues must also be paid and are not discounted.

Student Member Dues Reduced!!

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..

Such persons must have ten years of membership in the Association, with five consecutive years being immediately prior to the date of disablement or retirement.

Annual dues for Seniors are one‑half of the Association dues plus one‑half of chapter dues (rounded to the nearest dollar), payable by the individual.
