Founded in 1982, CompTIA brought together the IT channel in order to create an open dialogue between IT vendors and partners. We were officially established as the Association of Better Computer Dealers (ABCD). The association’s earliest benefits included a membership directory and vendor chats. Two years later, ABCD held its first major conference, and out of this came the decision to establish a full-time staff and permanent headquarters.
n 1990, ABCD changed its name to the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) to reflect the expanded scope of its activities, and two years later, we introduced vendor-neutral IT certifications, which are now a core component of our offering. In 2014, we expanded our legislative advocacy efforts by acquiring TechAmerica, a leader in international, federal, state and local public policy advocacy, as well as business networking and intelligence.
