The Board’s Message

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join the Boston chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP).
With approximately 4,000 members throughout the U.S. and Canada, AITP is one of the oldest organizations for technology professionals providing the very best networking opportunities and continuing education for IT professionals and practitioners.

Founded in 1951, AITP promotes the responsible management of information technology to the benefit of its members, their employers and society. At one time the Boston Chapter of AITP boasted over 500 members and was considered one of the premier chapters in North America. Our goal is to surpass these membership numbers and grow the Boston Chapter to its full potential.

While there are many IT user groups and continuing education opportunities in the Boston area, there are none with such a diverse membership as AITP to include CIO’s, managers, programmers, network engineers, web developers and all technology professionals wishing to expand their potential, manage their career and learn about new technologies and best practices.

Our dinner meetings are scheduled for the third Thursday of every month. Come join us at our next meeting and network with other information technology professionals – all our welcome and we look forward to seeing you then. Thank you.
