Chapter Elections for the 2018 Board of Directors for the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of ASIS International are scheduled to take place October 1, 2017 through November 30, 2017. The month of October will be dedicated to soliciting and gathering the required information on all eligible nominees. The month of November will be dedicated to membership voting. Voting will be conducted via the Chapter website http://www.sfasis.org. This is a great opportunity to serve the Chapter, earn more credibility as a security professional, and develop valuable leadership skills while working alongside other volunteer members of the Chapter!
The first step in the election process is for members to nominate themselves or another member. This step will begin on October 1, 2017 and will end on October 31, 2017 at 5:00 PM PT. No nominations will be accepted after this date and time. All nominations should be sent to email@example.com and copy the following Elections Committee emails: RVP@sfasis.org; AVP-RII@sfasis.org; firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Elections Committee of ASIS International Regional leadership and past Chapter Chairs will vet the nominees and validate the results of the Chapter Elections. To be an eligible nominee you must be a member in good standing by having paid both your ASIS International dues and the local Chapter annual dues for 2017.
This year we will hold Chapter Elections for the Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary positions. Any member in good standing may be nominated for any of these positions in accordance with ASIS International Chapter Bylaws. However, I strongly recommend that the nominees for the Chair position have adequate past experience volunteering as a volunteer leader with the Chapter!
Nominees interested in running for the 2018 Board of Directors-Chair, Vice Chair, or Secretary positions-must submit a response that contains the following:
- Name and ASIS Certification(s)
- ASIS International Member ID Number
- Why you feel you are qualified and prepared to take on this volunteer leadership role
· Any other pertinent information that would encourage the membership to elect you
Please keep in mind that this information (except your Member ID Number) will be communicated with the membership for consideration. As a side note, I strongly recommend that any interested nominees seek the support of their employers due to the need for Board members to participate in weekly conference calls, monthly Chapter events, and other event planning calls throughout the year.
Thank you all for your time in reviewing and considering this opportunity! Should there be any questions please reach out to the Elections Committee for response.
