Founded in 2005 by Terry Howerton and Fred Hoch, ITA evolved from previous organizations, the Chicago Software Association and the Illinois IT Association, to serve the technology community at large in Illinois and Chicago.
For 10 years, ITA’s mission has focused on maximizing the growth potential of its member companies and increasing the overall success rate of the local tech industry. Companies who are members of ITA are able to leverage our network, resources and expertise that they need to drive their growth. In addition, all employees at member companies have access to these benefits.
ITA provides programs and services through a three pillar action model – Grow, Build and Elevate. By utilizing all three pillars, ITA members can address both the strategic and operational aspects of their business to drive success.
