Charleston, S.C. (Nov. 5, 2002) -- The Information Technology Alliance, a consortium that includes some of the leading technology consulting practices affiliated with CPA firms, is enjoying a record-high attendance of 175 at its first general membership meeting since separating from the American Institute of CPAs earlier this year.New faces at the show here include business application vendors, Accpac International, NetLedger, and Intuit, all of whom joined since ITA split from the AICPA. At the time, the institute said it was curtailing the relationship in order to focus on core industry matters, such as auditing, while ITA officials said the split will help them expand.

ITA president Ron Eagle received a loud round of applause after welcoming the opening day crowd to the "new ITA." Privately, he acknowledged that the organization has a "new energy" since the split.
