IT industry trade association CompTIA announced today the TechAmerica name will no longer be used in advocacy efforts as CompTIA evolves and expands its engagement
CompTIA acquired TechAmerica in May 2014 and will now carry out its local, state, federal and international advocacy efforts.
“We firmly believe in and are fully committed to our holistic approach to improving the prospects for the IT industry,” said Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO, CompTIA. “This approach leverages all of the strengths of CompTIA – in education and credentialing, advocacy and philanthropy. To highlight all that CompTIA does for its members and the industry, it makes sense to align under a single, recognizable brand.”
The unification also included the integration of three public sector groups—the Human Services IT Advisory Group, the Space Enterprise Council, and the State and Local Government and Education Council—into CompTIA’s advisory councils and member communities.
