< return to list
Signup Deadline: 31 Jan, 2023
Starts: 01 Feb, 2023
Ends: 15 Dec, 2023


The EU Advocacy Task Force will coordinate ISACA advocacy efforts across the EU with the goal of streamlining efforts, responding to consultations, and ensuring one, consistent voice.

Anticipated outcomes:

The EU Task Force will input into EU public affairs engagement in policy issues that impact the profession, in addition to collaborating on ad hoc projects at ISACA Global’s request (i.e. consultations, etc.).  There will be the option of one in person meeting during this term (global health precautions permitting), but the other meetings, which are scheduled as needed, will be virtual.  In addition to responding to ISACA Global’s requests, the task force will look for and identify opportunities where ISACA could/should position itself in the EU market and within EU public policy discussions.

  • Identify and prioritize opportunities to place ISACA’s voice.
  • Coordinate objectives and messaging for meetings with government officials.
  • Potentially attend meetings where appropriate to do so.
  • Identify partnership opportunities for ISACA where the organization will benefit from collaboration.
  • Leverage the ability to coordinate efforts to engage in more high-profile public affairs opportunities.
  • Raise ISACA’s profile with EU government (and appropriate member nation governments) due to the coordinated efforts.
  • Demonstrate measurable results from coordinated efforts.
  • Engage with ISACA European public affairs team to ensure alignment and coordination on initiatives.
  • Provide input into position papers and other ISACA documents.

Volunteer Criteria:

  • ISACA membership required.
  • Knowledge of ISACA frameworks, products, certifications and services.
  • ISACA certification holders a plus.
  • Resident of the EU, or non-EU resident working directly with EU public policy efforts
  • Understanding of public affairs and ISACA’s advocacy strategy

Volunteer benefits:

  • Up to 20 CPE credits (max. 20 annually) in the area of Working on ISACA Boards/Committees/Working Groups upon successful completion of the term.
  • Travel to one in-person meeting in the EU (location, date TBD) depending on the global health situation and travel restrictions. Travel expenses would be reimbursed based on ISACA’s business travel policy.
