Monthly Update-February 2015

The Village Needs You.

The success of ISSA-LA over the last several years is a reflection of our volunteers. Volunteers serve on the Board, promote ISSA-LA at other events and – in general – give generously of their time and energy to support the village.

I want to invite everyone to consider volunteering to support ISSA-LA this year. We need volunteers to assist us reach out to our community and fulfill our Mission.

Volunteers are needed to support ISSA-LA activities in several areas. Some of these include

  • Providing information security education to the community
  • Promoting ISSA-LA on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook
  • Promoting ISSA-LA at other events and to other professional organizations
  • Vendor outreach
  • Web site design and development
  • Supporting the Summit … This is a biggie!!!!

I urge everyone to consider giving back in 2015. All you need to do is email ISSA-LA Board member Shannon Parks, who not only serves as our Treasurer, but as our Volunteer Coordinator as well:  treasurer@issa-la.org .  Let Shannon know what you might like to work on and how much time you expect to have available and she will put you to work!

Great thanks in advance.

Cheers –
