Dear Fellow Members,
It is hard to believe we are nearly a month removed from our Annual General Meeting June. The attendance reached nearly 300 people. We commemorated GWDC’s 45th anniversary and ISACA’s 50th Anniversary. Attendees received 8 CPEs and got to attend the networking mixer in the evening. Large scale events such as our full day conferences and Annual General Meeting are not possible without our dedicated volunteers.
The summer months are when the Board of Directors resets and kicks off the planning and execution for our fall events. However, during this time we still offer our CISM and CISA review courses, as well as, our Dark Web Special Seminar. Keep an eye out for social events or happy hours throughout the summer.
As you may have seen in our newsletter, we have two exciting partnerships for our members to enjoy discounts to the following events in July:
- DC Cyber Summit | July 16| Washington, D.C.
- Complimentary access limited number of C-suite or senior level GWDC members
- IT Audit & Controls 2019 | July 16-18 | Arlington, VA
- ISACA-GWDC members save 15% off when you register with code ITAC19-ISACA at checkout.
These partnerships offer membership benefits and provide us the ability to promote our chapter with a wide audience within the DC region.
If you are interested in volunteering and getting more involved with the chapter, any time is a good time, but the summer especially. At this juncture we are performing extensive preparation for the fall and 2019 so it is great to get involved now and be a part of some exciting initiatives.
