OUR CHAPTER BOARD HAS DECIDED TO TRY SOME NEW MEETING IDEAS THIS YEAR. WE WILL CONTINUE TO HOLD REGULAR MONTHLY MEETINGS, BUT ARE GOING TO HAVE A HOSTED LUNCHEON MEETING REPLACE ONE OF THE BREAKFAST MEETINGS EACH QUARTER. THESE EXPANDED EVENTS WILL FEATURE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS OR PRESENTATIONS OF INTEREST AND RELEVANCE TO OUR MEMBERSHIP. THERE WILL BE NO DUES COLLECTED AT THESE MEETINGS, AND GUESTS ARE WELCOME.
PLEASE REMEMBER, THOUGH, THAT DUE TO THE SOMETIMES SENSITIVE NATURE OF MEETING CONTENT , GUESTS SHOULD BE QUALIFIED SECURITY OR LAW ENFORCEMENT/MILITARY PERSONNEL. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS, PLEASE CONTACT CHAPTER LEADERSHIP.
Chapter Member Bill Lester will lead a discussion on his company's recent experience with so-called "1st Amendment Auditors". This is an emerging trend and is sure to expand. Security Professionals need to know how to respond and manage this phenomenon (and how not to). Qualified guests are welcome to attend, as always. $10 dues at the door. We hope to see you there!
