Chapter Update - May 12, 2015

Dear Members,



I am happy to report to the membership that new board members were appointed to fill the remainder of the year. Chapter Secretary Glenn Rudd was appointed to Vice Chair and Jennifer Evans was appointed to Chapter Secretary. I am confident that we have a strong board who will work to support the key initiatives of the chapter: Young Professionals, Women in Security and Professional Development / Training.



We will be meeting with our committee leaders very soon to lay out the remainder of the year. Our next Chapter meeting is set for Wednesday May 20th 11:00 am at Piccolos Italian Restaurant. Our guest speaker, Michael Eaton will give  a presentation on building and effective security organization  in urban schools. If you have not registered for this yet, please log in to the Chapter website and do so. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Thank you,



Byron McDaniel

Chapter Chair

MAY 5, 2015

As your appointed Chairman, I look forward to working with each of you and the current committee members as we move the Chapter forward. Training opportunities, Women in Security and The Young Professionals in Security are a top priority. 

 

Several weeks ago, the Chapter sent out a survey to the members asking for your input on several key issues. For those of you who took the time to submit the survey thank you! The Board has reviewed your comments and suggestions and I assure you that the Board is diligently working to address your concerns.

 

 I am happy to report that Board voted to proceed with a new vendor for the Chapter website and it is now under construction. We are looking forward to the launch of the new site in the near future.

 

Many of you have expressed that you would like to see the Chapter return to the rotating meeting times and venues. The Board voted in favor of this, which will start with our meeting this month. The June meeting will also be a lunch meeting however, the venue will likely change. Details will be posted on the Chapter Website as soon as it is confirmed.

 

At our next Executive Board meeting we will be discussing options for the Chapters summer tours etc.  Your suggestions are always welcome; please feel free to contact the Chapter Secretary.

 

Thank you for your time and continued support to the Chapter.
