What is an IAITAM Fellow?
IAITAM plays a prominent role in determining IT Asset Management best practices and industry direction. It is the membership that drives best practices, and experts and leaders with foresight emerge from within that base that can positively influence and extract improvements as business demands increase.
Receiving the recognition of being an IAITAM Fellow is not only a reflection of personal achievement, but it also highlights those leaders from the ITAM community who have achieved a substantial level of understanding of the ITAM industry. These individuals are advocates within their own environment for the advancement of ITAM industry best practices and are willing to assist IAITAM and its Members around the world in advocating best practices in asset management.
The Fellowship designation is only awarded to those individuals who have gone above and beyond and provided thought leadership to move the industry forward and have contributed positively to the IT Asset Management profession.
IAITAM encourages its Members to nominate those key individuals that through their excellence and drive have provided the knowledge to others. Current IAITAM Fellows are not permitted to nominate, but IAITAM encourages Members to contact standing Fellows to discuss the process and Fellowship program.
IAITAM encourages and provides opportunities for Fellows to remain involved in the profession by means of:
Nominations are initially vetted by the IAITAM Fellowship through the evaluation of written submission forms. This is followed by an election of a select few to become IAITAM Fellows. Appointments are evaluated on their merits and submission does not guarantee acceptance, therefore annual inductions are only conducted based on merit. IAITAM Fellows have a right to reject nominations based on failure to meet specified criteria and therefore no Fellows will be inducted for the given year.
