No matter how sophisticated the technology, it still takes people!

About Us

We are a professional organization serving the Information Technology community of the Greater St. Louis area.

The Saint Louis chapter of AITP was founded in January, 1951 as the National Machine Accountants Association (NMAA). In 1951, Harry Truman was President of the United States. "I Love Lucy" was first aired on October 15, 1951. On March 31, 1951 the U.S. Census Department accepted delivery of the first UNIVAC computer. It cost close to $1 million and had an add time of 120 microseconds.

The name was changed to Data Processing Management Association (DPMA) and renamed to the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) in 1996. Today AITP has over 200 chapters and thousands of members. For more informaton about our parent organization, please visit:

Our chapter is active throughout the year. We have 8 formal meetings annually--usually on the 4th Thursday of the month. We also have informal training seminars.In the past, we have joined with other information technology organizations to host two annual social events--a Summer Cool-IT-Down in July and a Winter Warm-IT-Up in December. Over 300 people attended the 2014 Winter Warm-IT-Up which was held at The Venture Cafe. This year we are having a holiday social in December for our chapter. In June and August in lieu of formal meetings, we participate in IT-related events in our community.

While most of our meetings are open to any IT professional, membership has its benefits. To learn about national benefits, please visit our national site. The best way to find out about benefits of being a member of the St. Louis chapter is to come to one of our meetings and ask us.

We encourage you to join AITP and select the St. Louis chapter as your local chapter when you register.
