President’s Message – Spring 2019

Dear fellow members,

Thank you for contributing towards our success during the 2018-2019 chapter year! I am pleased to report that ISACA St. Louis is making great progress against key member engagement initiatives outlined at the beginning of the year:

  • Eight events were held across Berkley, Chesterfield, Clayton, Frontenac, and The Hill. Three traditional breakfast technical sessions were supplemented with social and outreach events, such as our first #SheLeadsTech
    • 373 total registered attendees
    • 242 unique attendees (24% of existing membership and 90 potential new members)
  • Members and potential new members have been kept informed through new or relaunched communication tools:
  • Louis chapter membership has grown 8% over the past year and 14% over the past two years; faster than peers such as Denver, Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburg, Minneapolis and Kansas City.

Great results are made possible through engaged volunteers, please consider joining the chapter board as we deliver on the next set of exciting member-focused initiatives are planned for the 2019-2020 chapter year. I look forward to seeing everyone at the annual general meeting & member social at the Axe House STL on May 23rd at 5:30pm!

Ratification of Updated Bylaws by Chapter Membership

Bylaws widely vary from organization to organization, but generally cover topics such as the purpose of the organization, who are its members, how directors are elected, how meetings are conducted, and what officers the organization will have and a description of their duties. As a matter of good organizational governance, bylaws are regularly revisited to ensure they remain aligned to current best practices.

The Chapter Board has updated the current ISACA St Louis Chapter Bylaws (2015)  to align with the current template provided by ISACA International – resulting in the ISACA St Louis Chapter Bylaws (2019). The 2019 revision has been  unanimously approved by the Chapter Board as well as ISACA International. In order to become effective, the general chapter membership must ratify the updated bylaws.

PLEASE VOTE using the ballot that has been sent to your ISACA membership email address of record!

In addition to the results of email-based voting, a vote will be held during the Annual General Meeting on May 23rd at 5:30pm at the Axe House STL to satisfy parliamentary requirements for ratification.
