2019 Membership Drive

Jun. 25, 2019

Membership Update – Our Chapter is growing and we’d like your help to keep up the pace! On July 1st, we will kick-off our 2019 Membership Drive which will culminate at the August 8th monthly meeting where we will announce the winners and all of the new members who joined during the drive. We have recently sent out a flyer with the assorted details and incentives being offered but here’s how you can assist with the process.

  • Check your profile page on to make sure that you are still in good standing and renew your membership if necessary to maintain our current numbers.

  • Share the benefits of membership you experienced with your co-workers, peers and colleagues and invite them to attend a monthly meeting and join our chapter.

  • If you are a non-member that frequently attends our active monthly meetings why not become a member, it only takes a few minutes.

  • Ask your employer if they’d be willing to fund your membership as a general benefit to their overall information security posture.

Our membership page contains all that is needed to join and the costs/benefits of the various levels of membership. Collectively we can achieve higher membership numbers and all will benefit from our growing chapter.
