February 2017 Chapter Chair Message

Hello Everyone,

First of all, how about those Patriots and their win last night! It’s a good time to be a New England fan, that’s for sure. Although I’m sure many of us nearly bit our nails clean off….

So now onto the business portion of this message. The chapter leadership board and I have started the process of planning our meetings and events for the upcoming year. We are excited about some of the opportunities that are available to us amongst our growing chapter membership with their vast range of backgrounds and expertise in various fields of security and law enforcement.

To start things off for the year we took advantage of a great learning opportunity and welcomed an invitation from the Southern CT Chapter to attend their February event at the Offices of Hartford Steam Boiler Insurance & Inspection in Hartford, CT. Please consider traveling to Hartford to attend this event on Thursday, February 9, 2017. Event details are available on our website.

Speaking of our website, I’d like to remind everyone that we made significant upgrades to it last year and are excited about some of the newest features available to us. The site is now mobile-friendly and each event will show a link to pay for meetings and events using a credit or debit card. We will be adding a PayPal link in the near future.

As far as the up and coming meetings and events in our area, we are currently arranging the details of the March meeting. Anyone interested in hosting a meeting at their facility can reach out to me directly. I will be sending out invitations with more information at the end of the month.

In March I will have more details regarding the April meeting, as well as the Scholarship Golf Tournament in May and the BBQ Bash in June. I know that it’s several months away, but I’m happy to announce that we are booked at the Springfield Sheraton for our 2017 WMass ASIS Law Enforcement Appreciation Dinner on October 18, 2017!

Lastly, I would like to say that if any of you have any suggestions or questions please feel free to reach out to me or any of the other chapter officers. As the new Chairperson I will do my best to continue the tradition of making this chapter the best investment it can be for all of members of our chapter.

See you soon and best regards,

Joe Cyr

ASIS Western Mass Chapter Chairperson
