Honorary Doctorate of Letters Awarded
(10/13/11)- William Howard Taft University honors founder and CEO of International Association of I.T. Asset Managers, Inc. (IAITAM) — Barbara Rembiesa — with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters for her contributions to the field of I.T. Asset Management (ITAM) and her extensive philanthropic contributions to the community.
Dr. David Lady, Dean of the School of Business at Taft University, granted the honorary Doctorate degree at the IAITAM 2011 Annual Conference & Exhibition (ACE).
Ms. Rembiesa is the founder and leader of the International Association of IT Asset Managers, contributing to the field through her authorship of the twelve volumes of the ITAM best practice library and their impacts on industry innovation and knowledge institutionalization. Further, Ms. Rembiesa provides significant social contributions and acts of public service through her activity as an industry expert, guiding major financial, academic, manufacturing, and high tech firms throughout the United States, successfully representing corporations in negotiations with compliance agencies for software license violations.
Ms. Rembiesa has been active in supporting numerous charities including Children’s Hospital, Young Marines, Wigs for Kids, Susan G. Komen, Toys for Tots, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Habitat for Humanity, and others. In addition to her own charitable activities, Barbara has initiated IAITAM Gives Back — a once a month effort encouraging herself and employees to give back to charitable causes on a regular basis not just financially, but with their time and efforts.
“I am honored to receive this recognition from such a distinguished university,” said Ms. Rembiesa. “It’s been nearly 10 years since IAITAM was formed and we’ve nurtured the birth and maturation of a new profession through IAITAM education programs.”
