Annual Member Meeting 2015

Date: April 30, 2015

Join us for our chapter’s Annual Member Meeting and Officer’s Election! 

 

ANNUAL MEMBERS MEETING AND OFFICER’S ELECTION

Our annual membership meeting and Officer’s election is scheduled to be held on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 at  Wetherby Asset Management in San Francisco. This is where we will discuss chapter business, vote on important chapter initiatives and hold the officer’s election. We will also plan for one or two guest speakers so we can credit 2 Group A CPE’s for (ISC)2 credential holders.

It is very important that we have a great turnout as we need a quorum of members in order to hold the election. In the coming weeks, the election nominating committee will be distributing candidate questionnaires to interested candidates.

Chapter members are eligible to run for office provided that they meet the following conditions:

  • An officer must be a member in good standing of the Chapter
  • An officer must be an (ISC)2 credentialed member in good standing 

The elected positions include:

  • President – Vacant and available
  • Treasurer – Available with incumbent running
  • Secretary – Vacant and available
  • Membership Chairman – available with incumbent running

Officer’s Election  and Candidate Announcements

The elections nominations committee has received the candidate profiles and we are publishing them here as well as on the website so all are aware of who is running for office.

We still need a candidate for the chapter secretary and will be accepting nominations from the floor during tomorrow night’s meeting.

Round Table Discussion

InfoSec Hiring Boom?

Seems that a lot off companies at RSA were looking for new talent in the Bay Area. General Alexander called it “a feeding frenzy”. Nike was on town specifically to recruit. Are our members also looking to hire, or are they looking to change jobs in light of the increased demand for skilled security professionals? What certifications are hiring managers looking for?
