The objectives of the chapter are part of our bylaws that govern the Philadelphia Chapter of ISACA which are available to view or download under About Our Chapter on the top banner.
As one of the first and largest ISACA Chapters, our mission is to provide our members access to quality, relevant and cost effective educational opportunities; valuable networking opportunities with other Risk, Governance, and Security professionals; and, introduce our profession to students and others to attract new talent to our community.
We look to accomplish this by:
- Sponsoring educational opportunities throughout the chapter year for continuing professional development. These opportunities are to be offered through meetings, webcasts, conferences, and seminars in various locations throughout the chapter footprint.
- Serving as a conduit for bringing ISACA International thought leadership to our chapter members
- Making our members aware of career opportunities available locally and nationally.
- Introducing our profession to students and others to attract new talent by working closely with universities, corporations, etc. and through meetings, scholarship and outreach programs.
- Offering many opportunities to network with others through our website, in-person meetings, seminars, seasonal conferences, social events, and our annual meeting.
- Keeping members informed of current chapter events and other relevant topics, both general and technical, that are of interest to our members and are provided through available means such as our website, social media, and the chapter newsletter.
