2009 LE Night

The Start of a New Decade - 2010

As we close out 2009 and begin a new decade we look to new challenges and an ever-changing environment.  The Connecticut Chapter of ASIS (CONASIS) #005 was one of the first founding chapters of ASIS International.  From a humble beginning over fifty four years ago in Hartford Connecticut, a city known as the “Insurance Capital of the World”, the chapter has grown to an organization of over two hundred members working in just about every type of  facility located throughout the state.

I am honored to serve the chapter this year as Chairman.  I am most pleased that a significant number of members have volunteered to serve in appointed chapter positions.  The influx of new talent melded with established volunteer leaders should produce a number of chapter events that offer our members quality educational programs, and networking opportunities throughout the year.  I will strive to keep all members aware of planned chapter and regional events, and then provide relevant and appropriate details regarding the events via our web site newsletter.

In 2010 the chapter is planning to offer at least four quarterly educational meetings in addition to a Golf Outing (Jointly sponsored with the Southern Connecticut Chapter), and a Law Enforcement Recognition evening.  The year will end with our traditional Holiday meeting.  We will also begin to plan for our 55th chapter anniversary year in 2011.

The chapter can only meet our strategic plan with the support of volunteer board members and chapter members in general.  I urge all members to become active in chapter events and activities.  I am always open to any suggestions or concerns and can be contacted via email at david.furtak@conasis.org.
