Written by Sanjay Tiwari   

Georgia Gwinnett College’s student chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) recently capped a year of impressive firsts with a celebration on GGC’s campus.

AITP members, faculty and staff recently gathered to sign the group’s charter. Graduating senior members signed the charter, and celebrated the occasion with congratulations offered by GGC President Daniel J. Kaufman, who also signed the charter.

The chapter was created in October with 10 members, then grew to 25 and quickly achieved some notable milestones. Lissa Pollacia, AITP faculty advisor and professor of information technology, encouraged several members to attend this spring’s AITP National Collegiate Conference (NCC) in Orlando. This conference featured a range of competitions.  The newly formed GGC team was up against 600 students from 61 other colleges and universities, including Purdue University, Brigham Young University, Texas State University and many more of the finest information technology schools in the country.
