Leadership Updates

​​​​Thank you to the 100+ volunteer leaders from around the world who attended the 2016 annual leadership meetings, January 20-21 in Arlington, Virginia. 

Meeting Highlights

2016 President Dave Davis, CPP, outlined his vision for the year ahead, saying, "...it's an opportune time to recalibrate our efforts and our path forward. As a global association, we know our members perceive member value in different contexts and ASIS must expand its delivery capabilities to ensure we are offering what members need through channels that make it easy to engage with us."​​ View the video below to hear the full address.

New Strategic Planning Process—Background

In January 2015, the Board of Directors under the direction of then President Dave Tyson, CPP, launched an extensive assessment of ASIS global operations to determine whether the society was prepared to meet future member and market needs.

Three board-level committees were formed to examine the following:

  1. Internal alignment—Is the Board providing the right level of engagement and direction to both the membership and staff;
  2. Governance—Does ASIS have the right pieces in place, from staffing to resource allocation, to respond to and capitalize on market forces; and
  3. Global coverage—Does ASIS have the products and services in the formats needed to serve members across the globe? Do our leaders have the support to ensure ASIS fully delivers on its value proposition?

The ensuing conversations revealed—and member feedback reiterated—that just as security professionals must evolve to changing risk landscapes, so must ASIS evolve to keep pace and lead. These conversations set the stage for the January leadership meetings. For the first time in our society’s history, senior ASIS volunteer leaders joined the Board of Directors and ASIS staff for a strategic planning session. Attendees were challenged to imagine two vastly different futures for the association: what ASIS will be if it follows the same course, and what it can and should be.

From the 150-plus people in attendance, dozens of ideas were generated, and feedback was provided on what’s working and what’s not. The Board will use this feedback to develop draft purpose and promise statements, as well as build an organizational strategy that aligns to these goals.

This process is designed to result in a member-driven, business-forward strategy that harnesses the collective wisdom of our leadership, and ensures ASIS remains the worldwide leader for security management information and expertise.
