Hello ASIS Greater Kansas City Chapter Members –
The Tour of the EOC was a huge success! There were 57 members and guests in attendance. The food was great (Jack Stacks for those who missed out), the tour was informative, and there were some awesome giveaways by our host, Jennifer Fales. The EOC is willing to put on a second tour for anyone who was interested and unable to attend due to conflicts. Look for something later this year.
The March Luncheon should be spectacular! Steve Baker is the Deputy CSO for Global Security at State Street (where I work) who is traveling from Boston to present on Security Assurance. Steve is an active member of ASIS on both the International and Chapter levels. He currently serves on the ASIS International Leadership Management Practices Council (LMPC) and is the LMPC representative to the Leadership Development Committee of the Chief Security Officers (CSO) Roundtable. He also presented as part of a panel discussion at the 2014 Annual ASIS Seminar. Don’t miss this one!
In other news, March is membership month. Members should try and bring a guest (or several) to the March Luncheon. ASIS International has several membership campaigns right now to encourage security practitioners to grow the membership. The ASIS Greater Kansas City Chapter Board wants to extend a challenge to its members to help grow our chapter. From March through September, the member who brings in the most new members and the two (2) members who bring in the most guests will win prizes. Prizes will be revealed at a later date. Good luck!
On October 26, 2015, The Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission and local Law Enforcement are hosting the 2nd Annual Border Showdown – A Firearms Competition between Missouri and Kansas Law Enforcement. The KCMCC is considering the addition of a Security Professionals category. Qualified Security personnel would be required to have a current firearm certification through a law enforcement agency and be a current member of ASIS. If you or any qualified security officer would be interested in participating in this event, please contact a Board member of The ASIS Greater Kansas City Chapter.
The Board is accepting applications for both the Ralph Pusey and University of Phoenix Scholarships. The criterion for both of these scholarships is on the chapter website.
