“One For All” Campaign Kicks Off in Chicago
As an IT Professional, you may find it hard to believe that over 18 million American homes lack a computer according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Nearly 200,000 families right here in our Chicagoland neighborhood live without this basic appliance for success in the digital age.
The solution is literally under our noses; Chicagoland businesses retire hundreds of thousands of still-functional laptops every year, many of which end up in storage or go to recycling. AITP Chicago, Illinois Technology Foundation, TechNexus and LEGG are joining forces locally as part of a national program called One For All, with the goal to see every student in Chicagoland with a computer of their own.

Northeastern Wisconsin has many great technology conferences hosted by the best in the business, but the area is missing one thing: a conference that is focused on the IT professional, not the business that professional works for. This conference is designed to share knowledge in a professional development atmosphere allowing IT professionals to network with their peers and learn new insights that may just propel their business to the next level. In partnering local IT professional organizations, businesses, and hiring companies together, there will be value for all professionals in the IT sector.
Join us for our CEO/CIO Panel Breakfast, Business Expo, Career Fair, IT Professional Organization Partner Expo, and many exciting breakout sessions and speakers hosted at this full day event. Breakfast & lunch will be provided for all registered attendees.
