Our Chapter hosts monthly meetings on current IT related topics where professionals can network and discuss issues in corporate America, academia, and entrepreneurial ventures. We provide a vehicle for the technical professional development of computing specialists and a formidable networking environment that is a source of education, expert information and career opportunities for both members and guests. As a member our meetings are always discounted to you.
Our Chapter maintains an email list service. As a member you are automatically subscribed to the list. It is a member only list. Through this list you will receive our meeting announcements, educational opportunities, current job offerings, and other resource oriented topics.
As a list subscriber you may also post messages of this type to the list, which will automatically be distributed to our membership. We encourage you to use this list when you have information that you would like to share or job opportunities that are available.
