Kansas City Information Technology Professionals: A Year In Review
Life moves fast, doesn’t it? Sometimes it moves so quickly that you don’t take time to look back.
That’s the great thing about new beginnings: they give us time to review the past!
Let’s close out 2011 and look ahead to 2012 with a review of what happened with KC IT Professionals this year!
First Things First: Thank You
Thank you is a word that you’ll hear me say relentlessly. In fact, I can’t say it enough.
You made 2011 a great year – so thank you!
Kansas City Information Technology Professionals added around 2,500 members this year, bringing the total to almost 6,800.
The most important thing though, is your participation: whether it’s attending events or conversing online. So many of you did that in 2011!
However, the past wasn’t possible without you…and the future isn’t either.
If you’re an Information Technology Professional in Kansas City, I hope to see even more of you in 2012!!
When you participate, everyone benefits.
