The Association of Information Technology Professionals has been representing information technology professionals in the United States and Canada, since 1951 when the organization began in Chicago.
In 1952, the RTP Chapter was the fifth chapter chartered by our national organization. Like the profession, the chapter and the national organization have evolved with the explosion and pervasiveness of technology in the workplace and our lives.
Region 18 of AITP includes 19 chapters covering North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, and western Pennsylvania. It was formed when region 1 and region 8 merged together.
