Dear Members,

In this column I’ve shared with you thoughts on leadership, governance, and inner workings / operations of the Chapter Board.

The main drivers of the Chapter operations are key Board committees - Education, Certification, and Membership. In this month’s message I would like to recognize the Chairs of these and several other committees that are key in our success.

Under the leadership of Sabine Charles, the Education Committee has doubled number of classes offered, maintaining highest standards we set for that committee.

The Membership Committee, under the leadership of Matt Poswolsky, has achieved a record attendance for our membership events and has increased number of innovative social events.

Sam Malla and Tim Mortimer were appointed Chairs of Certification and Technology Committees, respectively, in 2017, their first year on the Board. The Certification Committee has expanded number of offerings and number of volunteers supporting the Committee. The Technology Committee has significantly improved the quality and turnaround of service to the Board and the members.

One of the key Board committees is the Finance Committee. It manages budgeting and financial reporting. We are grateful to the past Chair, Pat Martin, who has implemented robust financial processes several years ago. Our current Chair, Mike Shanahan, is tirelessly working on managing budget process and maintaining Chapter financial records as well as being a key member of the Membership Committee.

On behalf of the Chapter, I would like to thank these Board Directors for their contributions to our success.

Thank you,

Alexander Abramov,

President, ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter
