Welcome to the Region 18 Association of Information Technology Professionals website. Region 18, known as the “Leadership Region” includes Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. We are part of a National Association over 4500 members strong, and have professional and student chapters across the Continental United States and Hawaii.

We invite you to participate in our activities by attending a Chapter or Region event; Please see the list of Chapters under the ‘About’ tab to locate one near you. You can also join the Region as an independent member if there is not a Chapter in your locale.

Region 18 from time-to-time hosts conference events. These events consist of a combination of technical, management and leadership education - skills necessary to function well in today’s business environment. Some conferences run such that one or two overnight stays are involved, along with travel expenses. Other conferences, branded IT Con, are one-day conferences meant to draw people from the local area, though they are open to any region member and anyone in the IT community at large. In addition, local Chapters have regular meetings and activities that also promote technology education and encourage networking. If you are not already a member, why not consider joining the association of choice for IT professionals. If you are a member, thanks for your continued support of Region 18 and also your local Chapter of AITP.
