Technology Executive Forum

More than 20 percent of the AITP San Diego Chapter’s members hold technology executive positions, including CIO, CTO, Director of IT, VP of Technology, and more. We recognize these members and provide unique benefits and opportunity for them. A few examples of the value that AITP San Diego offers include:
  • Nominating members for the Top Tech Executive Award. In fact, three AITP San Diego members won this prestigious award in 2014, and 2 members won this award in 2013 and 2012.
  • Complimentary VIP pass to San Diego’s annual Cloud Computing Conference (run by AITP), and complimentary passes to many other AITP events, including The IT Summit, California Technology Summit, and more. 
  • Press opportunities. AITP members have been interviewed and featured in the San Diego Union Tribune, The Daily Transcript, and more. 
  • Opportunity to participate on Advisory Board at UCSD Extension for “Information Technology” and “Software Engineering Management Certificates.”
