Statement of Goals:
As the past president of the ISSA Northern Virginia Chapter and a current Director on the ISSA International Board, I have a profound appreciation for the "Grassroots", "Membership Driven" and "Chapter Strong" organization that is currently ISSA. Truly, nothing within ISSA happens without the hard work and dedication of each of the local Chapter Officers, Board Members, Directors and Volunteers. I salute you for all that you do to make your chapter the best it can be for its members.
While president of the ISSA Northern Virginia Chapter, I led the Board of Directors to double our chapter membership from 320 to 640 members in two years to become the largest ISSA chapter, tripled the revenue of the chapter to fund more chapter member activities, expanded the Board from 5 to 9 members and modified our chapter by-laws to better serve the membership.
For the past three years I have been a Director on the ISSA International Board working diligently to achieve similar results at the ISSA International level. I led, co-led and supported strategic initiatives to increase member value by the:
Development of a ISSA International Strategic Plan
Development of an annual ISSA International Security Conference
Development of an annual ISSA Chapter Congress - Meeting and training for chapter officers
Development of a social network for security professionals - ISSA Connect
Development of a collaboration tool for chapter operations - ISSA Connect
Development of a "Fellow Program" to recognize excellence in our profession
Establish robust web hosting for chapters
Establish child internet safety programs
Establish chapter officer liability insurance
As vice president of ISSA International my goals are to fully implement the actions detailed above to:
Double the membership of ISSA in two years
Triple revenues in two years to fund more membership benefits
Double the attendance from 450 members to 900+ members at the second annual "ISSA International Security Conference" to provide excellent education and networking opportunities for the membership
Why I want to serve as the vice president of ISSA?
Each ISSA member I have met is passionate about the information security profession and is constantly striving to make it better. I share your passion and want to ensure that ISSA will be "The pre-eminent trusted global information security community.” With your support, I will leverage my business experience in running successful information security organizations to help ISSA International achieve new heights in serving you, our profession and our industry.
