In January, AITP national, regional and chapter leaders gathered via telephone to discuss the direction of the association and needs of its members. AITP is striving to expand benefits, but we face many challenges. Communication at all levels will be the key to a strong future.
AITP identified the following chapter needs: · Assistance in programming and speakers · Increased awareness of AITP outside and within the industry · Expanded two-way communications
Consider the most recent benefits and services now available: · The Gartner affiliate program · The Robert Half Technology (RHT) program · The Microsoft partnership · Discounts on printing and signs at Kinko's
These are just a few of the services currently available to members. RHT, Gartner and Microsoft offer members an abundance of professional information and white papers. Members receive discounts on Gartner seminars. RHT will provide members with career development programs and services. And, all of these groups offer meeting programming for chapters.
The association's most advanced and strongest communication channel is the Web portal. Go to http://www.aitp.org/ and avail yourself of the benefits this organization has to offer. All member programs and links are on the Web. It is your portal to growth and professional development. Also, tell your friends and colleagues about AITP. Let's not keep this strong organization and its benefits a secret.
