The appointment of Dan P. Herod as chairman of the Alliances Council for AITP Dallas was announced recently by Deborah R. Lovell, president of the local chapter.
"The purpose of the Alliances Council is to develop partnerships or alliances with other IT-related professional organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth-North Texas area. Through the sharing of information with other professional organizations, our members will be more informed and better equipped to achieve some of their professional and personal development and networking goals," said Lovell.
Speaking on the goals and objectives of the Alliances Council, Herod said, "One of our primary tasks is to establish Web links to as many other IT-related professional organizations as possible from the AITP Dallas Web site. The goal, over time, is to establish the AITP Dallas organization as the go-to Web site for information concerning IT activities in the area. We will also be requesting that other organizations implement a link to our AITP Dallas Web site. In order to increase our effectiveness for IT professionals as the leading IT organization in North Texas, we are also inviting IT-related companies to join the AITP Dallas chapter as Alliance Partners. This encompasses all those household names we've come to know and appreciate through the years in the DFW area, in addition to technology groups that have recently come to North Texas. These IT operations are employers-of-choice to many men and women in the IT industry, and as a result, they readily understand the many benefits of partnering with AITP Dallas, including our continued education and professional development programs, shared code of ethics, daily networking and of course, monthly meetings, socials and opportunities to work closely with one another," said Herod.
Dan Herod is director of Sales and Marketing for Systems Source, Inc., a Dallas-based consulting firm, formed in 1995, that specializes in providing contract, contract-for-hire and permanent IT professionals for a wide array of companies throughout the Metroplex.
