September Meeting

Welcome to the ISACA Cincinnati Chapter

  

On behalf of the 450+ Greater Cincinnati ISACA® Chapter members, I would like to welcome you to our website!  We are proud to be the third oldest ISACA Chapter in the United States.

Our mission is to provide IT Audit, Governance, and Security professionals with the tools and resources needed to deliver high quality results adding value to their organizations.  Through our chapter meetings and training seminars, we offer many opportunities to network with local professionals and earn up to 40 CPE’s annually!

Our chapter has been recognized with an honorable mention K. Wayne Snipes award in our region for 2015. Our region encompasses 13 states and Canada. The K. Wayne Snipes Chapter Recognition Award provides recognition to the chapters that meet or exceed service goals by actively supporting local membership. Honorable mentions are given to chapters who did not win the K. Wayne Snipes award, however, still excelled as a top chapter throughout the year. This was made possible through the hard work of your chapter officers and the support that is provided by the chapter membership.

While we did not make our goal of 88% renewal by March 31, we will be having a member appreciation meeting in September when members are able to attend for free.  The board is also looking at other options to give back to our members.

Our May meeting is our Annual General Meeting.  The officers are elected for two-year terms.  This May we will be electing officers for the next two-year terms. All members at the meeting are able to vote for the new officers.  Our proposed list of officers is listed here. The chapter bylaws have also been revised.  They are available here for members to review prior to voting on them at the meeting.

Through our chapter meetings and training seminars, we offer many opportunities to network with local professionals and earn up to 40 CPE’s annually!  Our events are scheduled the first Tuesday of every month from January through May for the spring session, and September through November for the fall.  These meetings consist of educational presentations from some of the most respected industry experts in the area.  In addition, two annual training seminars are offered to earn valuable CPE credits.  We also co-sponsor, with the IIA, a golf outing to fund student scholarships.  The outing will be held on Friday, July 22nd.  Please refer to the “Announcements” section for a listing of upcoming events. We are also in the process of planning a CSX Fundamentals training opportunity.  This will prepare the attendees to take the CSX Fundamentals certificate examination.

We welcome new members.  If you are interested in joining our organization or would like to learn more about becoming a member, please contact our VP of Membership Mr. Mike Smith.  We also welcome new and returning speakers to present at our monthly meetings.  Please contact Mr. Aaron White if you are interested in presenting IT Audit, IT Management, IT Security, CyberSecurity, IT Risk, or IT Governance related topics at our monthly meetings.

The Greater Cincinnati ISACA Chapter’s greatest asset is our members.  Please contact me  if you have any questions or comments concerning our chapter.  We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
