September Meeting

The Greater Wheeling Chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) will hold its Wednesday, September 8, 2010 meeting at the White Palace at Wheeling Park, Wheeling WV.

The speaker for the evening will be Mr. Dave Sevick who will demonstrate the Apple iPad running the iPhone OS as a business platform. Dave is an Apple Certified Professional and has served the Pittsburgh Apple Community since 1988. At the end of the iPad presentation, Dave will talk about the ComputeReach, humanitarian computer outreach, a project that is near and dear to his heart and which I am sure we will all find very interesting.

We will meet on the first floor of the White Palace. Social time and registration will be from 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. The buffet style dinner will begin at approximately 6:00 p.m. and the presentation will start after the meal.
