ATP History

A letter from our Co-founder

Atlanta Technology Professionals (ATP) was started modestly in 1999. Our guiding principles of professional development – and networking that cultivates deep relationships – still hold today for the advancement of the Atlanta technology community. We have refined this over the years to include recognition of excellence, the genesis of premier events like Golf and Gala, and the formation of ATP Cares to give back to the Atlanta community.

The first meeting took place at a California Pizza Kitchen at the Perimeter in the Fall of 1999 with 30 attendees. We then held our first topical event in the Spring of 2000. In 2018 our Gala brought together over 500 technology professionals from the region. Our ATP family and influence has grown significantly thanks to strong continuity in board and executive leadership, as well as a welcoming atmosphere.

Thank you for being part of the ATP Family!
