2012 DPMA Legacy Society Jamboree – February 24 – 26, 2012

Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada

The Foundation for Information Technology Education (FITE) invites you to attend the 1st Annual DPMA Legacy Society Jamboree, February 24-26, 2012 at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. It is a great opportunity for DPMA/AITP members to get together, renew old acquaintances and have a lot of fun.

The Early Bird Registration Discount has been extended through February 8.  The Hotel reservation deadline has been extended through February 10.

The Jamboree is built on the ideas behind the "DPMA Leader Reunion” events, principally organized by past DPMA leaders like Howard and Dorothy Smith, Sam Luke and John Foertschbeck that were held in 2008 (Honolulu) and 2007 (San Jose, CA). The First DPMA Legacy Society Jamboree will be an opportunity to have another "reunion”; celebrate long-standing professional relationships and long-lasting friendships; and learn how you and your estates can benefit IT students and future IT leaders through donations and beneficiary declarations to the DPMA Legacy Society. Detailed information about the DPMA Legacy Society will be provided during the Saturday night group dinner but you can also check it out at
