For the last three years the Chicago Information Technology Architects Group has been the only community in the Chicago area for Software Architects, Enterprise Architects, Infrastructure Architects and Database Architects.  Suddenly this is changing.

The first change was a special interest group created by member of the Chicago .NET Users Group (CNUG).  This has just started in the last couple of months.

Now it was just announced that IASA is finally launching a Chicago chapter.  This is something that I originally had entertained and had been in talk with the organization about but never found the right group of interested leaders to get it up and running.

So what does this mean for Chicago area architects.  Mainly that there a lot more resources than we have ever had before.  I plan on getting together with leaders from each of the groups to discuss what we can all do to be server the community.

Stay tuned for more updates and be sure to get involved.
