The Information Technologists’ Company (ITC) was granted Livery status in 1992, becoming the 100th Livery Company of the City of London and received its Royal Charter in 2010. ITC is based on four key themes: Charity, Education, Industry and Fellowship. Its 750 members include Bill Gates, Tim Berners-Lee and Vint Cerf as well as the founders of most of the UK IT industry and major CIOs.
ITC is one of the largest and fastest growing Liveries in the City of London and the company needed a solution to support both the members and administration in managing its numerous committees, panels, social groups, and educational and charitable activities. ITC is full of active and enthusiastic members who are short on time but may be active in several committees.
The Liveries have a 900 year history of philanthropic support to the “Big Society”. The ITC’s Technology Panel was tasked with creating a next generation online members system for the Company, which would also act as a model for all the other 108 Livery Companies.
