Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship

The Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship provides $1,000 and the conference registration fee to enable a member of the AIIP to attend the AIIP Annual Conference. The Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship is intended to facilitate awareness of the benefits of attending future conferences and support and nurture an AIIP member who has not previously attended an AIIP Annual Conference.


Roger Summit prompted and inspired this award with a generous contribution. Roger is a leading pioneer of the online information industry and founder of Dialog. He has been a strong supporter of AIIP since its inception. Both as CEO of one of the earliest AIIP Industry Partners, and now as an Associate Member, he has actively contributed to, participated in, and enhanced AIIP activities.
