Welcome to the Nashville Chapter of AITP

News and Events

The Evolution of the IT World

    The Information Technology (IT) industry has changed greatly in the past 50 years. The machines have changed, the techniques are different, the people skills have changed, and even the names are different. How many of you know that AITP was DPMA, and earlier was NMAA?

Ron Payne

    Our July speaker will take us through the IT evolution as he experienced it, and he will also share his thoughts about the future of IT.

    Our speaker is Ron Payne who recently retired after 44 years in IT at the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Company of Tennessee (BCBST). Ron started at BCBST as a Computer Operator after graduating from a business college and majoring in data processing. After a short stint as a computer operator, Ron moved into programming. He became Supervisor of Programming and then Manager of Support Systems where he had responsibility for all system software, systems programmers, computer hardware analysis, computer systems upgrades, and the data center infrastructure.
