About the San Diego Chapter of the NPA

The SDNPA is one of the few places where network professionals can join together, network, and learn about multiple OS platforms, competing technologies, and products from divergent sources. The NPA is supported by membership dues and the corporate donations of co-market and competitive companies alike. NPA is not reliant on nor directed by any particular company, technology or product. Chapters and members are free to explore the complexities of mixing together disparate technologies by point, counterpoint and competitive review.


Please join and volunteer with us. Together we can improve and shape the San Diego NPA to meet your continuing education and professional needs.

Introducing The San Diego NPA

The San Diego Chapter of the Network Professional Association (SDNPA) would like to guide through an exciting industry movement - the growth and expansion of the network computing profession. In today's multi-vendor network environment, network professionals play a dynamic and powerful role in shaping how systems are integrated together.

The NPA is an association representing certified network professionals dedicated to advancing the network computer profession. The NPA advances the profession by uniting network professionals in a worldwide association that strives to set industry standards of technical expertise and professionalism and deliverer programs and services to meet member needs and interests. This is accomplished through strategic alliances with corporations, vendors, education providers, employment services, and other associations.

The NPA exists to serve the needs of network computing professionals. Our members make a living designing, integrating, managing and maintaining networked computing environments, playing a significant role in the purchasing cycle: 93% recommend or specify, 86% evaluate or test, and 41% approve and/or purchase. NPA membership represents more than $5 billion annually in computer and network product sales.

The NPA depends upon the support of our members and sponsors and associated businesses in the community.This site outlines how you can play a part in becoming a member or by sponsoring the growth, direction and impact that the NPA has on your business and the network computing industry.
