Board of Directors

Billy Campbell, Board Chairman

Board Chairman

Mr. Campbell has a strong background in business, marked by his successful career as an agency manager with State Farm and as an entrepreneur.

Honoring

Harris Rogers

Founder

The late Harris Rogers was the original investor and founder of ACS Technologies, formerly known as Computer Dimensions, Inc. It was through his vision, his experience in accounting and computer programming, and his leadership positions in churches that ACS Technologies became a pioneer in creating software for churches. Harris knew that churches would benefit greatly from software designed specifically to meet the unique requirements for managing membership, accounting, and contribution records. So, in early 1978 he started Computer Dimensions, Inc. It was among the first companies of its kind to provide computer software for churches. Years later, as the company grew into the world’s leading provider of church management solutions, Computer Dimensions, Inc. became ACS Technologies. With nearly 50,000 clients, ACS Technologies continues to grow today.

Mr. Rogers graduated with a B.S. degree from the University of South Carolina, where he majored in accounting. He then went on to serve in the United States Army. After his military service, Harris worked as a cost accountant and programmer for the E. I. DuPont Company. In 1968 he was recruited to create and manage the area’s first business computer center which served banks, CPA’s, colleges, manufacturers, hospitals, and churches. Throughout his life, Harris held leadership positions on various church boards and committees, was a member of the Jaycees, the Lions Club, and the Golden (K) Kiwanis Club. He also served as the President and CEO of Pathway Technology and was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Myrtle Beach, SC. Mr. Rogers passed away in December of 2013.
