Hello ASIS Greater Kansas City Chapter Members –
Both the March and April Luncheons had great turnout! I’ve had several requests for copies of the presentations so both have been uploaded to our website under the Presentations page.
Spring is upon us with two great events - The Law Enforcement Appreciation on May 7th, which is our largest event and the 15th year that we will honor a police officer with the Thomas R. Meyers Award. Please join us as we celebrate the relationships with law enforcement and ASIS. If you want to know more about Thomas R. Meyers, please check out the Awards page.
Then on May 18th, the chapter is sponsoring the Putting Contest at the 11th Annual SAFE Golf Tournament. This is an excellent opportunity for members to build membership for the chapter. For more information check the Events section on the website. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact a Board member.
Summer will heat up with our second largest event – the 3rdAnnual Physical Security Showcase on June 11th. This is a great opportunity to visit with various vendors about the latest trends in access controls, cameras, and other security technologies. Attend breakout sessions and hear Chief Darryl Forte (keynote speaker) present on fighting crime with technology. Earn up to 3 CPE credits!
Don’t forget the 15th Annual ASIS Greater Kansas City Golf Charity on August 12th. Sign up solo...sign up a team...sponsor a hole...come out and support ASIS. A portion of the proceeds goes to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Registration is open for all of the above events!
Please welcome Tim Kile (Strategos) as the co-Membership Chair. He will be assisting David Brown with retaining and building membership.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who help to run the chapter! We couldn’t do it without YOU!
