I ask you to help us help you by reaching out to any of the officers or directors with ideas for events or
training that you would like to see here at ISACA.
This is your chapter and we need your input with ideas and your involvement as volunteers to help run
the chapter. Your ideas and personal involvement is invaluable to us. Please take a moment and think
about how you can best help.

In the coming months, you are going to see a new web site, which will include a feature that I am very
proud of, a joint regional calendar which will include not only our own chapter’s events and training, but
also the training, meetings, and events offered by other different organizations in our region of the
country. I believe this will allow us to better serve you our members.
