In an important step supporting ASIS International’s transition to its new global governance structure, ASIS members chose three of their own to join the inaugural ASIS International Nominating Committee this past July.

In an open election, members elected Melissa Bostick, CPP, regional security manager, North and Latin America, Willis Towers Watson; Rachelle Loyear, VP, integrated security solutions, G4S Americas; and Gary Miller, CPP, PCI, PSP, physical security systems manager, First National Bank of Omaha; to serve on this committee.

Bostick, Loyear, and Miller join ASIS Chairman of the Board Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, and Board Directors Gail Essen, CPP, PSP, and Richard F. Lisko, CPP, as members of the Nominating Committee.

The committee is tasked with reviewing and selecting three at-large ASIS International Global Board of Directors seats from a pool of 26 candidates by 20 August. Following Board approval, the new members of the Global Board will be announced at Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Chicago on Monday, 9 September.

“The ASIS Board has dedicated years of careful work to realize our goal of a Global Board supported by members in every region around the world,” says Chase, who serves as Nominating Committee Chair. “This election is a strategic first step to that end. With the help of our members, we have established a Nominating Committee that is a diverse cross section of our membership. The committee will take the needs of our members under advisement as we embark on the selection process in the coming weeks.”

The candidates for the ASIS International Global Board of Directors will be evaluated according to a list of core values and competencies, including:

  • Management experience
  • Knowledge of ASIS programming
  • Knowledge of the security profession
  • Marketing/branding knowledge
  • Strategy development
  • Visionary thinking
  • Team orientation
  • Leadership skills
  • Global outreach
  • Digital transformation
  • Cultural intelligence

Bostick will serve a three-year term on the Nominating Committee, with Miller serving for two years and Loyear serving for one year.
