     WORD FROM THE CHAIRMAN


    60th Anniversary 1960 - 2020

    I hope that our members and their families are healthy and staying safe during these challenging times.  A lot has changed since our last newsletter.  The chapter board and committee chairs are continuing to plan and implement ASIS activities.  We are still developing activities that can be accomplished safely during this pandemic, and planning for events for when this world event is over. Please stay connected and informed while we work through these difficult times and stay safe.

    Bill Carroll (Chapter Vice Chair), Senior Investigator, AT&T Asset Protection hosted our March 5th luncheon discussing major security upgrades recently made the Entertainment Services facility located in Mission, Kansas and out of which AT&T Uverse, DTV and AT&T TV operations provide television services to the nation.  This facility is considered a cash cow to AT&T producing income for the company in the range of $10 to $15 million an hour.  Bill covered the process through which the security upgrades were proposed and changed to fit budget restraints.  The attendees were given a tour of the operations in the building by a senior engineer within the video operations center of the facility. 

    Greater Kansas City Award deadline is 30 April. Please look at the below to make a nomination.

    Chapter Historian –

    • Attached is the newsletter from ten years ago, March 2000.  There is a lot of interesting information and fun to see how things have changed.  One item of note is, “The chapter debated and passed a resolution establishing a benevolence fund.  The fund provides a $1,000 grant to Private Security Officers’ families in the event they are killed in the line of duty.  The fund will be placed in a interest bearing account and will be replenished to the $1,000 level by the chapter, if necessary.” Does anyone remember this fund or have more information about it?

    HAPPY NEW YEAR KC ASIS!

    On behalf of the new board, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.  I’m hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season. Now that we are getting back to the grind, the board and I are excited to serve the chapter in 2020. I would like to personally thank the outgoing board, especially Theresa Bentch, for their service to the chapter and guidance during the board transition. We are excited to implement new initiatives, continue existing ones, and bring back some old ones. Of course, we cannot do it all by ourselves, we are going to need volunteers to assist with the multiple chapter committees.  

    Our next Luncheon, ASIS and YOU!, we are going to explore the different ways that ASIS benefits the security professional, and how chapter members can volunteer their time and talents to the local chapter and ASIS International.  This is a very important meeting to start the new year off right. I would like encourage all chapter members to attend.  To ensure full participation, the chapter member price will only be $15, instead of the normal $25.

    PLEASE BE THERE!

    Best Regards,

    Richard Dunn, CPP

    KC ASIS Chapter Chairman
