WHO WE ARE.

AITP Charleston was established in 1951 for professionals to learn about trending IT topics, both in and out of the office. We meet monthly to discuss recent IT concerns and share our knowledge with our peers. Our membership ranges from IT students to sales representatives to C-level executives, and everyone in between.

CompTIA AITP Charleston Chapter

This chapter, 184, is one of the original AITP Chapters and started as a group of bookkeepers who moved onto punched card coders and evolved into a diverse group of information technology professionals.

Systems operators, small business owners, network engineers, programmers, and sales representatives round out this chapter’s membership and come from a variety of industries including military IT contracting, education, financial, health, ISPs, and small business.

Our Focus

The low country is a historic American area, and the Charleston Chapter balances its long history with a focus on the future.

  • Education is key to our mission: The Charleston Chapter parents three student organizations.

  • The long arc of information technology as a profession

  • The chapter’s future — members work to keep topics relevant to IT pros and solution providers working now.

Regular Meetings

Expect fun, relaxed meetings with the Charleston Chapter. Tech pros in Charleston are known for their hospitality. In their 2018 technology events, members got to learn how to use big data to predict the future, deal with the fallout of ransomware, and kick back on a distillery tour and brunch with other tech pros.
