Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month. Have an idea for an upcoming meeting? Interested in reviewing recent meetings? Visit the Member Meeting Database on Basecamp for more information.

Upcoming: August Member Meeting
Title: ITCC/PTC Joint Meeting Brainstorm
Date: Thursday, August 17th
Time: 11am CT

March In Person Meeting Wrap Up
If you weren’t able to attend the March in person meeting at ATP, stop by the ITCC Blog for a quick recap. Otherwise, all materials are available on Basecamp for your review.

Fall In Person Meeting
We are thrilled to share that Microsoft has graciously agreed to host the next ITCC Face to Face Meeting!

Mark your calendar to join us October 4th-5th in Seattle, Washington. Both ITCC and the Performance Testing Council (PTC) will meet at Microsoft for their meetings and host a half day joint session between the two groups. The joint PTC and ITCC session will have performance based testing case studies as well as detailed discussion groups.

As we discussed during our last in person meeting, ITCC has been looking at ways to help offset costs of the in person meetings. The Board has been working hard to close the gap and we’d like to try offering a $50 fee to support covering the cost of the Member Dinner. With different reimbursement policies from each of our member companies, a receipt will be provided to mark it as either a registration fee for the meeting or as a meal cost for dinner, whichever the member chooses when providing their RSVP.

Besides your travel expenses, all other meeting meals will be graciously covered by Microsoft as Fall Meeting hosts.

We hope you join us as we discuss the latest from ITCC and the certification industry in the beautiful northwestern U.S. this Fall.

If you are an IT vendor and interested in sponsoring the Member Dinner, please reach out to ITCC HQ for details on the opportunity.

Fall Meeting Schedule:
Tuesday, October 3rd:           PTC Meeting

Feel free to begin booking your flights now according to the above schedule into Seattle Tacoma International Airport (Airport Code: SEA).
