Dear ISECON/CONISAR Attendee:
Welcome to the 28th ISECON Conference. I thank you for your ongoing support of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), the Foundation for Information Technology Education (FITE) and our Educational Special Interest Group (EDSIG). This is the premier Information Systems Educator event and simply put, this would never have been possible without your help. |
With nearly 400 educators as part of our current membership, we place a significant importance on the value that each of you deliver on a day to day basis. As those who are on the pulse of the industry, you provide the knowledge to the future IT leaders on the role they can play in tomorrow’s IT Industry. As you are aware, the annual AITP National Collegiate Conference (NCC) is a strong example of the value we deliver to members. It gives college and university students opportunities to network with peers, speak with industry leaders, and receive certification. While ISECON remains the premier event for IT Educators, please take time to encourage your students to attend the NCC next year in San Antonio, Texas. This event will take place March 29 through April 1, 2012, and is hosted by Texas State University – San Marcos and St. Mary’s University. If you are looking to participate in the NCC either as a participant or volunteer, we encourage you to visit the NCC site at www.aitp.org/ncc for complete registration details.
Once again, AITP is pleased that you are able to join together for three days of education and networking. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of the AITP Board of Directors with questions. We all believe in the philosophy that you can’t “do it yourself.” For that simple reason, we believe in AITP and are confident that you will find the tools you need to make your participation in AITP and EDSIG a major success.
I look forward to meeting you at the conference and working with you in the future.
Jim R. Henry
