The Membership Committee coordinates our quarterly membership meetings, providing members with Chapter updates and educational presentations on current topics of interest. We also plan annual award dinners and other special events such as conferences and golf outings.

Membership meetings and events provide an excellent opportunity to network with fellow Chapter members and professionals peers - and networking is a vital part of keeping up with current technology and trends.

Networking is a vital part of keeping up with current technology and trends. The quarterly Chapter membership meetings provide an opportunity for members to hear about Chapter news and initiatives, learn about a current topic of interest, and network with other ISACA professionals. Other fun and interesting events are held periodically to provide additional educational and networking opportunities.
