ISACA Puget Sound Chapter Board 2023-24 Nominations & Call for Volunteers!
ISACA Puget Sound Chapter invites you to join its Board for the upcoming operating year (Sept. 2023 - May 2024). If you are interested in any open opportunities, volunteering, or additional nominations, they must be submitted by April 16, 2022, for consideration and review to be voted on at the Virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 16, 2022, at 11:30 am. Board members must be current, active ISACA members. While we welcome anyone to volunteer for any position, it’s recommended that they serve on a committee or shadow a job before taking on increasing responsibility.
We currently have openings for Education roles (Education Director and Education Committee members) which are great opportunities to start! Next week, we will announce initial nominations for Board Officers and Board Directors - nominees and details will be found on our Chapter home page.
Feel free to reach out to email@example.com or any of the board members for additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate what role you want to learn more about so we can direct you to the appropriate resource.
Board Perks and Other Important Information:
PERKS! Being a board member provides personal growth opportunities beyond your day job. Current board members represent several industries and have varying experience levels, bringing unique perspectives and diversity to keep the chapter viable. This is also a great way to give back to the information security, audit, technology, and related professional community! Board members can attend monthly luncheons for free, and there are often discounts or compensation on other ISACA-sponsored events. You can earn up to 20 CPEs in a fiscal year which helps maintain the annual CPE requirement if you have an ISACA certification.
Standard Operating Procedures are in place to assist board members in understanding their roles and responsibilities. Of course, seasoned board members are here to help new people learn and grow.
Board meetings are held monthly for 1 hour via conference call throughout the year, including semi-annual live dinner meetings for chapter planning. The perks are great, but it does take commitment (around 20 hours minimum per year, depending on the role). All Board members must sign a Willingness to Serve statement indicating attendance and commitment requirements, including board meetings. Board members are also recommended to attend at least two monthly membership/educational meetings throughout the fiscal year, although more may be required depending on the position.
If you’re interested in learning more, we encourage you to review the chapter Bylaws which can be found at https://engage.isaca.org/pugetsoundchapter/aboutchapter/bylaws. The Bylaws contain brief descriptions of duties for each board position.
We look forward to your interest in joining the team!
