Welcome to the AITP Southwest Missouri Chapter!



A Message from the Chapter President

With 250 members and counting, our AITP Southwest Missouri chapter is the largest in the nation – a dynamic, award-winning group with growing regional and national influence.

We offer Southwest Missouri’s IT professionals and industry leaders unmatched opportunities for education and networking. We are funding scholarships — even launching our own endowment, with an ambitious $50K goal — and empowering local IT students with the skills and confidence to achieve professional success. Our annual "tech IT out Technology Showcase & Expo" now hosts more than 800 attendees. And our monthly calendar is packed with interesting events and ways to connect.

We've been able to build this enthusiastic community thanks to the shared spirit of support and collaboration that makes Springfield MO such a great place to work and live.

As your 2016-2017 Chapter President, I hope to see you at one of our events in the near future!

Why I Joined AITP

I have been an IT professional for twenty years, and I’m the founder of two technology-based businesses. This is what I do, and AITP has provided incredibly rewarding opportunities to share my experience. This organization has helped me grow, both personally and professionally, and build many great relationships.

Over the next year, I hope we can work together to achieve a few exciting goals:

  • Our volunteers work very hard to make this chapter great. We are going to find ways to streamline their processes so we can make the most of their efforts and keep volunteers engaged for the long term.
  • We are going to continue to build on our existing calendar – which offers more than 80 events per year -- by adding more activities to serve our diverse crowd of IT pros with varying interests and needs.
  • We are going to fine-tune our collaboration with other local technology organizations, and increase opportunities for partnership and cross promotion. Check the community calendar for upcoming activities and events!

I am excited to lead our chapter in 2016-2017 as we continue to find more ways to serve our members and promote technology throughout the region.
