From humble beginnings in 1960 as the "Data Processing and Computer Society", IT Professionals NZ (Te Pou Hangarau Ngaio) has seen vast changes in technology, and huge growth in Aotearoa's presence on the world stage as an innovative tech community.
Last Thursday night over 40 members celebrated 60 years of IT Professionals NZ in Dunedin with a special black tie cocktail event, acknowledging those who have played a part in the growth of IT in the region over the last six decades.
ITP have consistently been the voice of NZ's tech profession to Government and others, while helping develop its members, set industry standards and recognise those who aspire to excellence.
IT Professionals NZ wish to thank the Dunedin ITP branch and all those who attended to make for such a successful 60th Anniversary celebration. A special thanks go to the event hosts, Gallaway Cook Allan Lawyers and SIGNAL ICT Grad School.
"The event was a resounding success, a perfect match for our branch and enjoyed by many." - ITP Deputy President, Anthony Dowling
