ASIS News: Apply for a Nominating Committee and Get Ready for GSX

Serve on a Regional Board Nominating Committee

Applications are open for the ASIS Regional Board Nominating Committees. There are four committees, each nominating members for the North American, European, Latin American, and Asia Pacific Oceania regions, respectively.

Nominating committees identify and select ASIS board officer and director candidates who meet the desired competencies and characteristics identified for the overall composition of the board. The committees will ensure that the selection process is properly implemented per the association’s policies.

In many respects, the nominating committees are the most important committees at ASIS; they are responsible for the selection of the leaders of the organization at the global and regional levels.

If you are passionate about ensuring ASIS leaders will do their duty and guide the organization to meet the mission of the organization and the global security profession, serving on a nominating committee will be a good fit for you.

Nominating committee candidates must have been an ASIS member and volunteer leader for at least five years at the time of application.

Don’t miss your chance to make a difference in your region—applications close 31 May.

Elevate Your Knowledge at GSX

The full Global Security Exchange (GSX) education lineup has been announced, including three world-class keynotes, game changer sessions that explore trends that will shape the future of the security industry, and more than 200 concurrent education sessions.

Kicking off GSX with the Monday keynote is Sanna Marin, the former prime minister of Finland and the youngest-ever prime minister globally. Marin will discuss the intricate facets of key geopolitical challenges—notably the Russian assault on Ukraine and Finland’s consequential entry into NATO—and share strategies for mitigating dependencies on authoritarian regimes.

Jen Easterly, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), will speak on Tuesday. Easterly will address how we can broaden our resilience investments and utilize collaborative partnerships—across industry, government, and communities—to ensure our nation is secure and increase our ability to respond and recover to the ever-evolving threat landscape presented by our greatest adversaries.

On Wednesday, retired U.S. Navy Commander Kirk Lippold will discuss his personal experiences in the armed forces, highlighting the importance of accountability in leadership. Lippold will also cover his “Pillars of Leadership,” which serve not only as invaluable business tenets but essential foundations for any team weathering challenges.

Each day will also feature a game changer session themed around black swan risks and unknown knowns. The sessions will focus on organizational resilience, trust in a mistrustful era, and security amid crises.

The 200+ concurrent sessions will include expert-led deep dives that can improve the practice of security professionals at any stage of their career, covering topics such as artificial intelligence (AI); ESRM best practices; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I); active assailants and workplace violence; cybersecurity; business continuity and crisis management; crime prevention; and more.

GSX 2024 will take place 23-25 September in Orlando, Florida. All-Access Pass registrants can earn up to 22 CPEs toward their recertification if they attend the in-person or digital experience.
