2022 New England Security EXPO Platinum Sponsors

CHAPTER CHAIR WELCOME MESSAGE

Welcome to the Boston Chapter!

Hello and thank you for taking the time to check out the Boston Chapter of ASIS. As one of the oldest chapters in the US, the Boston Chapter of ASIS International prides itself on assisting security professionals from all industries and at all levels to develop and grow as a security practitioner. Whether you’ve been in the industry for 30 years or are just entering the field, we hope to be a resource to assist you in your journey. The relationships built, trainings held, and our certification prep courses are just a few of the ways we are here to support you.

2021 felt like a rerun of 2020 to say the least continuing the challenges and uncertainties faced during a Global Pandemic. We saw continued creative solutions, a lot of updates, and coming together in an effort to get through all that 2021 brought. As I reread my 2021 Welcome Letter I am not so quick to claim that we have “a finish line in sight”.

In 2021, the chapter was able to continue holding many virtual events and trainings where members (new and veteran) came together to discuss various topics, learn new things, and just say hi and check in with colleagues. We held our first successful Virtual CPTED certification course and though we were unable to hold our Expo for the second year in a row we are hopeful we will be back in person in 2022!

We continue looking at ways to collaborate with other Chapters and other organizations to continue to bring relevant content to our members! Your participation and input about what we can provide this year is eagerly anticipated and sincerely appreciated!

I would like to congratulate the rest of the 2022 Chapter Officers! Paul Baratta has returned as our  Vice Chairman, Kelsey Carnell has returned as our Secretary, and Matt Gagnon has returned as our Treasurer. I would like to welcome Elliot Perkins to our Board who was appointed Vice Treasurer by the 2022 Board. I’d like to thank Nick Biagioni who served as Vice Treasurer last year and helped us transition treasurers and set us up in a good direction moving forward with the role! Additionally I want to thank all committee chairpersons who put in a lot of time and dedication to ensure that our Chapter is moving in the right direction.

Our goal is still to sustain, grow and create a succession plan for the Security Industry here in Boston. This goal can’t be achieved without the participation, mentoring and collaboration of all of our members! Please stay in the loop with us and allow us to be a resource to you and your organization! Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to get more involved!

Thank you,

Stephen Bertoni
