AmeriNet Joins the Merit Community Supporter Program

We are pleased to announce that AmeriNet of Ann Arbor, Michigan has accepted our offer to become a Merit Community Supporter.

The Merit Community Supporter program invites organizations who share Merit’s core values to join our community. Merit’s Membership includes higher education, K-12 school systems, libraries, governmental agencies, healthcare and other nonprofit leaders in the state. Merit Community supporters fund a scholarship program that ensures Merit Members are able to attend events and cybersecurity education courses. These events provide opportunities for IT leaders in our state to collaborate, network and learn about emerging technologies.

“We are happy to expand on our long standing collaboration with AmeriNet to offer services to our Members, and welcome them as a Merit Community Supporter,” said Joe Sawasky, President and CEO of Merit Network.
