ASIS Minnesota Chapter 1999/2000 Annual Report: Summary

About MNASIS | Events & Activities | Related Organizations



ASIS MN Chapter had a very successful year. We were able to respond affirmatively to the goals set out at the beginning of our term, which are: 1) to encourage "more members to participate in the activities of the Chapter as planners, decision-makers, organizers, implementers, or members of the audience; and 2) to improve the flow of information to and from our members. Altogether there was more reporting on what we want to do and the status of the different projects at some points in time. There were more solicitations for volunteers, nominations, suggestions, ideas, and other feedback. They are also of course mentioned as frequently as opportunities arise in other communications.

Membership
The number and composition of the Chapter membership varied through the year. However, as of April 2000, we had 71 members, of which 54 are regular members, 1 student upgrade, 11 students, and 5 institutional.

Projects
The ASIS MN Chapter accomplished several important projects and took on new initiatives this year - we are proud that we are able to do these and continue with those services that are already in place.

Services
The listserv, the newsletter, the program meetings and continuing education sessions are services that continued from the previous years. New this year are the Web site, Public Relations, Scholarships, Job Placement.
