Message from the Chapter President

Leading Through Critical Change:  THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ERA

Dear Chapter Members,

Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel?  With the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccines and the upcoming Spring Season, healthier and warmer days are coming our way.  I encourage you to stay positive and focused on better days coming our way. 

As we prepare for the Chapter board transition, I am pleased to announce that the Chapter is in a strong financial position which is due to a number of embedded efficiencies across our operation.   Over the last year, the Chapter fostered new partnerships, identified alternative topics aligning to the current environment, and strategically enhanced our operations.  We will continue to expand programming, introduce new initiatives, increase the number of events, and expand our certification training efforts throughout this year and beyond.   Take a look at the other sections of this newsletter to learn more about upcoming Membership, SheLeads Tech, Emerging Professionals and Corporate Relations events.  You also find new educational classes and a host of certification prep courses to choose from.  Don’t miss the information under the Academic Relations section regarding our student competition.


Board nominations closed on February 15th.  Information regarding the voting process will be available in the coming weeks.


The nomination window for 2021 candidates will run through March 15, 2021.  I would like to invite you to nominate yourself or submit a candidate profile for someone you believe embody the spirit of this distinguished award.  Information about Joe Wasserman, his contribution to the profession, award criteria, and past recipients can be found on the Chapters’ Wasserman webpage.  Please send your submission (including all criteria) via email to:  Wasserman@isacany.org.   

As I mentioned in last month’s newsletter, the winner of the Wasserman Award will be announced at the June 24, 2021 Virtual Annual Gala (AGM).  More information on the gala will be made available soon.
