A major purpose of AITP is the development of educational programs for self-improvement of its members. The association encourages high standards of competence and professional attitude, as well as increasing awareness of the impact of information processing on society, stressing members' responsibility to employers and society.

Anyone with an interest in computers, information technology, etc., is welcome - dinner reservations are requested, however. Our dinner meetings are normally held on the 4th Tuesday of the month; however, we usually meet on the 3rd Tuesday in November and December due to the holidays, and we usually take a break and/or enjoy a picnic gathering in the summer.

Board meetings are normally held on the 1st Tuesday of the month. All members and their guests are welcome at the board meetings.
