Although AITP is still part of the CompTIA family, the working relationship has been changed to give local chapters more independence and to allow the Chapters and CompTIA to better focus on their strengths.
Many people can find value in both organizations. Each maintains it's own member database and bills separately. You are no longer required to be a member of both organizations - you can choose either one or both.
AITP Chicago and the other local chapters focus on providing networking, mind-sharing and training for technology professionals.
In normal times, most of this will be live, in-person interactions. During Covid we have switched to virual meetings using Zoom or WebEx. Once live meetings resume, we will continue to supplement them with virtual meetings to provide more value to our members.
CompTIA will focus on providing education, training and certifications for students, career changers and 0-5 year professionals. Their primary goal is to build the pipeline of potential technology professionals. Most of this will be virtual. Annual Dues for CompTIA Professional Membership are $49 purchased through the CompTIA Store Club.
