Are monthly meetings important to you? We are considering if these are useful to our members. should we meet less often? Quarterly? other? Format of meetings: luncheon vs dinner, finger food vs sit down, etc... ideas?

A goal is the continous education of members as they progress throughout their IT career. Another goal is to network with peers to share ideas and friendship. A major goal is to exercise your leadership skills. Get involved with the chapter management to give back to your IT peers. Are these goals reasonable to you? How would you improve them? Thanks......

June 12, 2014 The Final Frontier by Dick Davies

The Final Frontier" by Dick Davies

The Board is pleased to have Dick Davies back to speak to us. This is a business topic that can affect everyone in the coming years. Bring your coworkers to hear Dick, meet fellow members and guests, and enjoy good food. Note special pricing. Make your reservations early. AITP DC is committed to the professional growth of members by presenting meaningful topics at monthly meetings.


About the presentation:

In the next fifteen years, the majority of boomer-built, privately owned companies will change hands. These companies are the heart of American infrastructure.

This will be the largest change of ownership in the history of our economy. We are already seeing innovative transactions that people who have stopped learning don’t understand. Understanding how to profit from this change is important.

Google recently bought WAZE for over $10 million dollars per employee. Bystanders and regulators think someone was hoodwinked, stupid, or illegal. It’s really easier just to understand what drove the transaction, and how you can take advantage of it.

Join us for The Final Frontier to get some new insights on how business, careers, and society are changing.
