Monthly Meeting Locations

As 2018 planning continues by the Board of Directors, please consider hosting a monthly chapter meeting at your place of business. Over the last handful of years, the Board of Directors has made a conscience effort to move and showcase each monthly meeting at a different members’ place of business. If you have a space within the greater twin cities metropolitan area that can comfortably hold 50-75 with AV/Media options, we’d enjoy hearing from you! Please email Lisa Mountain, Membership Chair (lmountain@ptnet.com) if you’re interested.

Volunteerism 2018

Have you changed jobs, retired or just have more time on your hands? Want to maintain both personal and professional connections within the chapter? Please let us know who you are! As we move into 2018 there will be multiple opportunities to help out the local chapter leadership with various items, tasks, meetings and/or events. We’d enjoy it if the ASIS MN Chapter remains a place that you continue to network and dedicate your volunteerism towards. Please email current Co-Chair, Nate Zoellner (nate.zoellner@vtisecurity.com) or current Membership Chair, Lisa Mountain (lmountain@ptnet.com) if you’re interested in additional volunteer opportunities.

    Safety is Personal: Lessons Learned as Survivor of the Virginia Tech Tragedy
    As the world witnessed the tragedy that transpired on the Virginia Tech campus in April of 2007, the lives of Kristina Anderson and her classmates rapidly changed as a student gunman entered her classroom and committed one of the worst acts of violence in history. Shot three times within twelve minutes, Ms. Anderson will share a candid, first-hand account of her personal experience, the journey towards recovery, and her mission for how increased education around threat assessment and management can help individuals take personal accountability to help prevent violence, respond and recover within our communities.

    Speaker: Kristina Anderson is an international advocate in the fields of bystander intervention, active shooter response and violence prevention within schools, workplaces and public spaces.

    Kristina is founder of the Koshka Foundation for Safe Schools, a non-profit that provides training on the prevention of school and workplace violence, education on active shooter preparedness, and consultation on post-crisis recovery. Ms. Anderson travels extensively within the United States and Canada to spread the importance of preparedness and joint training between citizens, educators, law enforcement, emergency managers, and first responders. Ms. Anderson started the non-profit after becoming one of the most critically injured survivors of the 2007 Virginia Tech school tragedy, where she was shot 3 times.

    Ms. Anderson is also co-founder of LiveSafe, a mobile technology communication platform for sharing safety-related information that is used by over 100 college campuses, as well as corporations and hospitals.

    Ms. Anderson has delivered training to numerous law enforcement and government agencies, as well as schools and workplaces to include school resource officers, university administrators, fire and emergency managers, FEMA, the FBI and private corporations. She is a member of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals and graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in International Studies.
