DAYTON-WRIGHT CHAPTER CHAPTER - Oct 25, 2007

More than 2,500 government, industry and academic professionals in information technology were on hand in October for the annual InfoTech Conference, the chapter's event that has been conducted since 1991. Senior-level guest speakers, business seminars and professional training sessions were on the agenda of the event, as well as an inaugural career fair that drew more than 35 exhibitors, including the National Air and Space Intelligence Center. This year's trade show, centering on the conference theme 'Cyberspace and IT&Flying in Formation,' featured more than 150 booths with displays and demonstrations of the latest in emerging technologies. Guest speakers included Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, USAF, commander, U.S. Cyberspace Command, who delivered the keynote address; and Gen. Bruce Carlson, USAF, commander, Air Force Materiel Command, who spoke at the capstone luncheon. Several high-ranking officials in the information technology field participated in panel discussions. Proceeds from the event go to the chapter's scholarship fund, which benefits seven local universities: Cedarville University, Central State University, Clark State, Edison State, Sinclair College, Wright State University, and University of Dayton. Kathy DeMolet, chapter vice president for education, told event attendees the chapter has contributed more than $1 million in support of scholarships. The chapter raised more than $30,000 this year.
