Description

A group of computer software and services CEOs from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s shared their experiences in participating in ADAPSO and particularly in the national conferences. They described the importance of the free interchange of information among the ADAPSO members at the conferences and how this enabled them to improve their own business operations. They talked about how the conferences were planned and the contention among the sections on allocating sessions and speakers. The relationship of ADAPSO/ITAA to regional associations was explained in some depth and how ITAA’s role changed so that national conferences were no longer a valuable part of the ITAA activities.
