CompTIA Association of IT Professionals (Akron-Canton) Pages

Brief History

In November, 1952 the first organizational meeting was held for what was to become the Akron Chapter of the National Machine Accountants Association (NMAA). The meeting was held in the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company office of Art Wernecke, and was also attended by F. Maguire, Russ Klippert, George Plazak, R. Young, and Jack Klingle.

The first official meeting of the newly formed organization was held at the Women’s Club of Akron on February 24, 1953 with 46 members and 15 guests in attendance. The NMAA – Akron Chapter received its charter in July 1953, and by October of that year had grown to 58 members employed by 25 companies in 8 cities in the greater Akron area.

As time marched on, and the nature, scope and importance of automation continued to grow in the workplace the NMAA evolved as well. In June 1962, the NMAA was renamed the Data Processing Management Association (DPMA), and in 1996 the name changed again to the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP).

Today, the Akron Chapter of AITP is still active in the greater Akron area, and as committed as ever to its mission of providing leadership and education for the information technology community.
