Call for Donations for NCC
From Chuck Brown, Chairperson of the Region Presidents’ Council, President, Region 1, Member, San Diego Chapter
As we continually try to engage the AITP Student Members we are asking for any donations that you, your chapters or your members can make to our National NCC booth. We are looking for donations relevant to our Information Technology minded students such as software or discounted software, IT magazine subscriptions, gift certificates for something IT related, iPads, E-readers, thumb drives, etc. All donation questions and considerations can be sent to Vicki Hampton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vicki would like these donation commitments by March 15, but no later than March 30.
Thank you, in advance, for your support of NCC 2014.

The event is rapidly approaching and the early bird discount will expire on March 14th.

Happy Birthday WWW!
It was just a short 25 years ago that the world wide web (as we know it today) was born.
Tim Berners-Lee was a computer programmer at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. He proposed a way to make links betweens documents, contextual pathways that could be followed in a logical way to browse through mountains of data and arrive at exactly what you need. These links are second nature for most of us now but the effect has been revolutionary.
This is an very interesting article from the Telegraph in England: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/10662977/How-the-web-was-born-WWW-turns-25.html
In case you missed the announcement, Facebook will be unavailable February 29th through the 31st for maintenance. I’m glad I didn’t wait until the last minute to get this out!
