Many of our GWDC events are in Arlington, and we received feedback that, though it is central to most of our members, it isn’t convenient or possible for some of our members to go to Arlington during the work day or after work. Over the last six months, the Board sought to schedule events in other locations in our region. We offered attendance at conferences in Tysons and Nationals Park and held a cybersecurity night in Sterling. We invited members and their guests to membership happy hours in Washington, D.C., Arlington, and Herndon. Our most recent happy hour was at Brio in McLean. We had a nice turnout and met lots of members who can’t always make it to our meetings and networking socials in Arlington. It provided a casual environment to meet other members, network, and hear about ISACA GWDC volunteer opportunities.
Please watch the events calendar and look out for our bi-monthly GWDC News in Brief emails for details about our annual multi-org happy hour in May following the IoT Conference, another after our premier Annual General Meeting, and more over the summer months. We are listening to YOU and look forward to meeting you soon!
