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.
