Message from the Chapter President

Leading Through Critical Change:  THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ERA

Dear Chapter Members,

Spring is finally here, and the New York Metropolitan Chapter is excited about the wonderful events coming your way.  We have a number of great membership events, certification prep classes, educational event and much more.  While we continue to follow CDC guidelines.  Therefore, we will continue to conduct our events virtually.  Here are a few highlights to look forward to:

We are excited about our 2020 Annual Recognition event (recognizing our Past Presidents, Top Certification Scorers, Certification Recipients and Star Volunteers).  For the first time ever, our Certification and Academic Relations committees are teaming up to bring our student members a fantastic event presented by Jay Ranade.  The Corporate Relations Committee will bring you another interesting Fireside chat and Membership, along with SheLeads Tech will be promoting our Women in Cyber event.  More details regarding these and other events can be found in this newsletter.


In the coming weeks, you will receive a ballot along with instructions to cast your vote for candidates running for board positions, including President, 1st and 2nd VPs, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer, Recording Secretary and 14 Director positions.  This is a full board election year.    Chapter Bylaws is up for approval as well.  The incoming and outgoing board, along with the winner of the Wasserman Award will be announced and celebrated at the June 24, 2021 Virtual Annual Gala (AGM).  More information on the gala will be made available soon.
