Founded in 1951, the Association of IT Professionals (AITP) remains one of the largest professional technology associations in the country.  In October of 2016, AITP became a subsidiary of CompTIA in order to leverage their strengths and bring more benefits to our members.

AITP Chicago is one of the largest chapters of the Association of IT Professionals (www.aitp.org). We hold monthly dinner meetings as well as Special Interest Group meetings throughout the calendar year. AITP Chicago also founded and sponsors our annual CIO of the Year Award (co-sponsored with SIM Chicago and the Executives Club of Chicago), the Most Effective IT Team Award (co-sponsored with SIM), and the CISO of the Year Award (co-sponsored with ISSA).


It is the mission of AITP Chicago to provide superior leadership and education in Information Technology. AITP is dedicated to using synergy of Information Technology partnerships to provide education and benefits to our members and to working with the industry to assist in overall promotion and direction of Information Technology.
