Greetings to All,
We have seen some positive changes over the past couple of years with the ISSA Motor City Chapter, from a number of sponsored hosted facility sites, meeting formats, new membership, and Board leadership. The 2012 year ended with an elegant catered Christmas meeting at the Vista Tech Center in Livonia. This year we are pleased that Schoolcraft College’s Vista Tech Center will continue as our platinum sponsor, hosting our monthly meetings the third Thursday of every month. We are truly appreciative to all our sponsors, because it is through each and every sponsor’s generosity and support that we are able to accomplish the many goals we have set forth to help the ISSA Motor City Chapter thrive and prosper.
It is an honor to have the opportunity to serve the Motor City ISSA Chapter as President for the 2013 year. The ISSA Motor City Chapter has seen growth in a number of areas and is moving forward and looking to even more growth this next year and beyond. The Board of Directors has been the driving force towards propelling changes, stemming from strategic planning, which has been fundamental in setting chapter goals that will be accomplished over the next several years. This year our chapters goals are to grow the membership, create new leadership positions and involvement, as well as create a new ISSA Motor City Chapter web site, which will be
instrumental in helping to accomplish our immediate and long term goals.
There are plans in the works to help add to the resources that have been made available to the chapter in the past. One such plan, which is already in motion, is to provide two qualified speakers for each meeting. We welcome any ideas and suggestions on how we can better serve the membership for the future. Great efforts will be taken to build upon what has been accomplished by all those who have served the chapter since its inception, so as to help ensure the information systems security arena we represent, as a professional organizational chapter, will continue to enlighten and edify the local membership.
I look forward to seeing you all at a future meeting or event.
President, ISSA Motor City Chapter
