Joining AIIP as a student was a great way to see if the organization was a good fit for my ultimate career goals. The reduced rate is a wonderful benefit for cash-strapped students. Besides that, I made instant friends and colleagues with my fellow first-timers at my first AIIP conference. Everyone in the organization is keen to share their knowledge -- it's an amazing resource for asking questions, getting feedback on ideas and finding mentors for the future.
