60 Years of AITP History and Presidential Leadership:


60 years Ribbon


The AITP Atlanta Chapter has been serving IT professionals for the past 60 years through its support of professional career development, friendships, and education.  
The year was 1951. Harry S. Truman was President of the United States. A 3 bedroom home cost $9,000.00. A new Ford listed for $1,480.00, postage was $.03, and a loaf of bread cost $.16. Joe DiMaggio retired from baseball, I Love Lucy premiered, and peace talks began in Korea.
We are happy to recognize the service of our Presidents to this organization from when AITP was known as DPMA to present. In addition to honoring them and their dedication to AITP, we will have the privilege to hear their experiences, advice and tales of technology. Please join us for a great night of reminiscing on past technologies, past presidential leaders, as well, as a look into the future.
