Statement of Goals
As an International Member, you should expect an association that provides opportunities to improve your skills, asserts a positive influence internationally, develops and mentors the next generation of information security professionals across the globe, and works to resolve the information security issues that concern us.
If elected as Chief Financial Officer / Treasurer, my goals are to...
...influence prudent use of funds in support of international membership interests. Expect negotiated discounts for conferences and training, professional representation of our membership in international forums, and collaborative industry improvement opportunities with governments, universities and other professional organizations.
...ensure financial needs of the international membership are represented. Expect efficient disbursement of chapter dues and sensitivity to foreign currency differences as they relate to membership dues, training and conferences.
...procure technologies to reduce chapter administration workload globally. Expect effective use of international funds to reduce chapter administration tasks such as event management and web conferencing.
...communicate how your investment is spent and regularly solicit your feedback. Expect transparent financial reporting and the opportunity to provide feedback if the financial interests of the international membership are not satisfied.
I look forward to the opportunity to exceed expectations and I know that, internationally, we can discover and pursue opportunities to improve our association, our profession, and, in turn, make our world more secure.
