"As we move Together Forward, young professionals like these being honored at distinguished student chapters play a vital role in SHRM’s success," said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. "I’m especially honored to thank this year's award winners because they offer excellent evidence that SHRM's future is indeed in good hands."

SHRM student chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, the most recent one of which lasted from April 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018.

New to the event this year were two major virtual reality demonstrations featuring the projects of computer science students, as well as technology entrepreneurship discussion panels lead by Sean Ahlum from tekMountain and Diane Durance from UNCW Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The event’s keynote speaker was Eric Boyette, CIO for the state of North Carolina. His presentation was extremely popular, raising the need to simulcast his talk to another room in the CIS Building due to demand.

WITX continues to be known as the largest one-day gathering of IT professionals in southeast North Carolina. Conference Chair, Dr. Tom Janicki, and the rest of the WITX team thanks our sponsors for their continued support of this exciting and successful event.
