60th Anniversary 1960 – 2020

I hope that our members, colleagues, families, and friends continue to stay healthy and safe during these uncertain times. We are definitely being challenged, but at the same time there have been countless displays of outstanding character and professionalism by the KC-ASIS chapter members. I'm truly honored and humbled to be the 2020 Chapter Chair for this great organization. This past month we hosted a joint Webinar with InfraGard that had over 100 attendees.The chapter board and committee chairs are continuing to plan for relevant ASIS activities. Please stay connected and informed while we work through these difficult times and stay safe. If you have any questions or recommendations please contact me at chairman@kcasis.org.

Best Regards,
