ITA Announces New Board of Directors

The Information Technology Alliance (ITA), an independent membership association of leading mid-market technology professionals, consultants and product/service providers in North America, today announced newly-elected Board of Directors leadership. Allen Smith, CIO at Baker Tilly, and Stacy Schuettler, President of LBMC Technology Solutions have been elected ITA Board of Directors Chair and Vice-Chair, respectively.

The announcement comes as ITA marks its 20th year as an independent membership organization.

The new Board of Directors will be introduced at the upcoming ITA Fall Collaborative, to be held December 3-5 in Salt Lake City.

In their new roles, Smith and Schuettler will work with ITA Board members Mark Severance, Director of Sales & Marketing at Arxis Technology; April Blankenship, Director of Marketing at Altec; Stuart Tholen, Partner, Eide Bailly LLP; and David Emmer, CIO, Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP.

The ITA Board works collaboratively with staff members Stan Mork, ITA President, and Lissa Johnsen, ITA Vice-President.

“Our new slate of Board members, including Allen and Stacy in their leadership roles, brings tremendous knowledge, experience, and perspectives to ITA governance,” said Mork. “I have great confidence, during this 20th year of ITA’s existence, that this well-represented Board of Directors will guide the organization deftly and responsibly into its next chapter.”

The ITA is an independent, not for profit, professional association of leading CPA firms, consulting firms and technology vendors whose purpose is to share information and build relationships that improve the way its member firms, and their clients, do business. Because the ITA membership roster consists of some of the most highly regarded mid-market technology professionals, consultants, and product/service providers, ITA often employs its collective influence to act as an authoritative voice for the IT profession. The ITA membership shares the common goal of providing products and/or services to the small and mid-sized business community. For more information on ITA, go to
