Dear Chapter Members,
We are no longer accepting applications/candidate profiles for the 2020-2021 Board Election. It is now closed. We are still accepting applications for the Wasserman Award. Applications will be accepted through March 15, 2020.
Kudos to our financial team for submitting the initial requirements and documentation for the annual audit.
Finally, please take the necessary precautions to minimize your exposure to the Coronavirus. Following the State of Emergency announcement by the Governor Cuomo, the ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter board have taken precautions to protect ourselves and our chapter members. As we continue to witness the increase in the number of cases across New York City, we felt it necessary to revisit our events scheduled in the month of March. All summer Certification classes will be conducted online. The Certification and Past President Recognition event is postponed until further notice. In the meantime, please take protective measures to minimize your exposure to this virus. Below are some recommendations from the WHO and the CDC:
The World Health Organization recommends several protective measures including:
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizers if soap and water are not available.
- Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue or into your elbow.
- Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
- Stay well hydrated.
- Consider limiting casual contact when greeting others (e.g., shaking hands).
