|About AITP Membership|
|Written by Membership Director|
Atlanta Chapter AITP members are IT professionals and others interested in the technology issues of Georgia, the nation and the world. For many years the organization was known as DPMA, the Data Processing Management Association. The name was "updated" several years ago. Membership in the Atlanta Chapter includes membership in the national Association and Region 7.
The Chapter is active in technology issues and events in the Atlanta Area, in the Region 7 Area (the southern states) and through the national organization, in national and international issues. There are several chapters in other Georgia cities, including Columbus, Savannah, Macon and Augusta.
The Chapter provides professional development seminars and workshops, opportunities for professional networking, technical updates and social events for its members. In addition, the Chapter sponsors Student Chapters at universities, colleges and technical institutes in Georgia and North Carolina.
Membership is by application, and combined dues in the national Association, Region 7 and the Atlanta Chapter are $158 a year. There is an additional $15 one-time processing fee the first year. Meeting fees are $20 for members, who may prepay meeting fees for a full year (9 meetings) at a discount ($175 for 9 meetings) or pay at the meetings they attend. The meeting fees basically cover the costs of meals, meeting room fees, speakers' fees, door prizes and A-V equipment used at the meetings.
