    Word From the Chairman

    Hello, ASIS Greater Kansas City Chapter Members,

    I hope that this newsletter finds you all well and healthy. We had a great month in April with a very well attended chapter meeting (over 50 registrants!) hosted at the Overland Park, KS PD Myron Scafe Station. Our guest speaker was Christopher Staley, an attorney from Sanders Warren & Russell, who taught us on premises liability. Our more recent event on May 4th (may the fourth be with you) was held at Shamrock Towers with a presentation by Titan Protection on the technology and benefits of remote monitoring services. Many thanks to Titan Protection for sponsoring our May event.

    Now, I have an urgent request: I invite you all to register for our June event, the chapter’s annual Physical Security Technology Showcase and Awards Ceremony. Details can be found below and also at this link. We switched up the venue this year and will be at the DoubleTree in Overland Park, KS. We are also bringing in an amazing keynote speaker, Clint Emerson. After you register, please invite another colleague to register as well. We want to make this showcase a success for all of you and for our vendor sponsors. Slowly, our aim is to grow this event into the premier security event for the Midwest. We need you there!

    That’s all I have. We hope that this newsletter is beneficial to you. If you have specific feedback, please let us know at info@kcasis.org.

    Stay safe,

    Jared Oakden, CPP, PSP

    The Kansas City Chapter wants to extend a big thank you to Dr. Christopher Walker from Texas Christian University for meeting with several law enforcement officers aspiring to retire and transition into the private security profession. Dr. Walker delivered the keynote address at the chapter's annual Physical Security Showcase event and elected to stay an additional night to sit down with officers from around the Kansas City metro. The event was coordinated by Terry Owens, and accompanied by Michael Betten, CPP (KC LE Liaison) and John J. Riotte.

    Law Enforcement Agencies represented included North Kansas City, Overland Park, Kansas City MO and the United States Army. The evening provided a wealth of information for the participants, a chance to network and thoroughly enjoy everyone's stories. Dr. Walker's insight and experience offered a wealth of information to those in attendance. We encourage all chapters to do the same as the experience was one to remember.

The adoption and integration of devices have led to an increasingly interconnected mesh of cyber-physical systems (CPS), which expands the attack surface and blurs the once clear functions of cybersecurity and physical security.

     WORD FROM THE CHAIRMAN

    60th Anniversary 1960 - 2020

    I hope that our members, colleagues, families, and friends continue to stay healthy and safe.  It feels that we are now in a new normal, things are opening up but with new protocols.  GSX+ took place completely online, schools have opened in-person, virtually and hybrid, and businesses are learning how to operate in this new environment.  Even our beloved Royals and Chiefs have taken the field, with minimum fans in the seats. 

    This month we had the opportunity to honor and present the Clarence M. Kelley Award to Chief Thomas Hongslo, Lenexa, KS Police Department.  Bill Carroll, Chapter Vice-Chair presented the award with Kansas City Crime Commission President, Rick Armstrong.  The presentation was recorded and presented at the Crime Commission virtual annual luncheon ceremony.

    The chapter was honored at the recent GSX+ with the Best Website Award, and was runner-up for Best Newsletter Award. This year has been challenging, but we have continued to persevere to be the best chapter possible.  The chapter board looks forward to the time when we can all meet again in person, sometime in mid-2021.  We will continue to plan and host informative events and find ways where we can socialize virtually. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing everyone at our next virtual event.

     WORD FROM THE CHAIRMAN

    60th Anniversary 1960 - 2020

    I hope that our members, colleagues, families, and friends continue to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times. Just when you thought things couldn't get stranger, June happened. We have finished our fourth month dealing with COVID-19 in Kansas City, and the new normal is starting to settle in. It feels like a life time ago that we had our last in person chapter luncheon, hopefully in August we will be able to have an in-person event.  2020 is half way over, but the Chapter is still striving to provide engaging topics and events. The board and I appreciate everyone's patience and support as we continue to find novel ways to provide quality presentations and events for the chapter. 

    The Greater Kansas City Chapter is not the only organization to be affected by the Corona virus. GSX is transitioning to a virtual-only environment for its 2020 event, GSX+ is a fully virtual experience that includes CPE-eligible education sessions, a robust Marketplace (virtual exhibit hall), and peer-to-peer networking. View the GSX+ Schedule At-a-Glance.  .

    In support of Officer Mike Mosher's family, please consider making a donation in memory of Officer Mosher please, memorial page.

    Again, I'm truly honored and humbled to be the 2020 Chapter Chair for this great organization. If you have any questions or recommendations please contact me at chairman@kcasis.org.
