Welcome to the ASIS Greater Kansas City Chapter Website

Our chapter serves the greater Kansas City area of both Missouri and Kansas. The security profession makes the world a safer place and has a positive impact on the future of the organizations and stakeholders we serve. ASIS is the global leader in security professional development, education, and standards, transforming lives through the leadership we provide, the communities we create, and the products and services we deliver.​​​

It is the goal of ASIS and this Chapter to serve as an active resource for information on various security and management skills by exposing members to all disciplines so they can become key players in the modern business environment.

I would like to encourage you to review our website for resources and security opportunities. If you are not already an ASIS member now is the perfect time to join.

    Last week, our chapter was offered a unique opportunity for a sneak-peak of the brand-new Kansas City airport terminal before its opening at the end of the month. Our tour covered the entire airport from the parking garage to luggage handling with a focus on security operations and technologies. The only downside was that our group was limited to 20 attendees, which we could have at least doubled from all the interest this event received.

    Many thanks to our chapter member Michael Satter for connecting us with our host David V. at DHS.
