ISACA OVC President's Note (2018-2019)9/10/2018 9:00 AM

Dear ISACA OVC Members / chers membres,
I hope you have had the chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather we had this summer with friends and family; I certainly have.
The newly elected Board is fully energized and ready to serve you in the coming year.  We have already been hard at work with two planning sessions over the summer to plan our activities for the year.  We have lots of exciting events and training sessions coming up, and we are expecting a member of the ISACA International Board to come and visit us in the fall; stay tuned for further details.
As always, we value your feedback on topics and speakers of interest to the membership.
Nous espérons vous voir en grand nombre à nos activités pour faire de cette année à venir un grand succès!

Alain Rocan
Président / President
