Presidents Corner:
The SFBayISSA Chapter elections are right around the corner. Last year you voted to change the Chapter by-laws to split the board position elections for alternate years for continuity planning purposes. This year the following positions are available for nomination and election: Vice President, Treasurer, Membership Director, and Communications Director. Position requirements are outlined here:
The nomination and election schedule for 2013 is as follows:
  • Nominations are due by: February 22
  • Announce the election slate: February 28
  • Hold election (voting) by eligible chapter members: March 14 - 24
  • Announce 2013 SFBayISSA Board election results: April 10
Running for a Board position provides you with a chance to be directly involved in the direction of our chapter. The technical, project and management skills used are directly applicable to your personal and professional growth.  Besides being a part of a great team, your participation is rewarded with 40 CPE credits per year.
Our Treasurer, Joan Rose, is organizing a Security Awareness Interest Group. There will be quarterly meetings to share security awareness materials and plans. If you or anyone you know would like to participate, please email Joan at joan.rose at blueshield dot com.
