The Montgomery Information Technology Summit (MITS) is an annual fundraising event for the chapter’s Education Foundation. A golf outing occurs on the first day of the event in which Young AFCEANs manage the onsite logistics at the course. For the summit portion of the event the Young AFCEANs manage the entire registration process from the website, to badge printing and distribution, to the onsite registration kiosks. This is the premier event for the chapter and in collaboration with the organizations at Maxwell Gunter it brings in over 800 attendees and over $140,000 in donations for the chapter.
Planning for the Montgomery IT Summit, 24-25 May 2011, is advancing wonderfully. We have settled on an exciting theme for this year: Riding the IT Wave: Enabling A More Effective, Secure DoD. For our speakers, we’re targeting six areas to buttress the overarching theme: 1) Governance, 2) People, 3) Infrastructure, 4) Commodities, 5) Processes, and 6) Applications. We’re also working closely with the AFITC planners with the intention of our themes, subtopics, and speakers complementing or building off of one another, with the collective ultimate goal of helping the DoD transform its IT acquisition, development, and operational activities. We’re also continuing the Tom Brantley Golf Outing on the 23rd, so please don’t hesitate to visit our chapter website to sign-up for one or more sponsorships. The golf tourney is our premier fund raising event of the year that enables us to support the IT academy and other Education Foundation initiatives.
