Chair's Message


Greetings members and friends and thank you for visiting our 2016 ASIS Chapter #005 website! Please make it a habit to visit our website often, as this is our primary means of communicating with the membership and informing you of upcoming meetings, events and activities. 

Many thanks to my fellow board members for volunteering their time and efforts to serve the needs of our chapter this year. Volunteer leadership is the cornerstone of ASIS, at both the national and local levels, and I encourage you to consider taking on an officer or committee position that allows you to contribute within your personal area of comfort and expertise.

2016 marks our chapter's 60th anniversary - quite a significant achievement considering all the competition for organizational volunteerism, time and attention. The Connecticut Chapter was the 5th Chapter formed in the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS), an organization that has since taken on international status, and boasts a total membership in excess of 35,000 members worldwide. Our chapter was chartered in 1956, just one year after ASIS was formed. 

This year's annual Law Enforcment Appreciation Dinner will again be hosted at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville, CT - a truly outstanding venue! The event will take place on Octobr 19th and we are honored to have Deputy Chief Brian J. Foley of the Hartford Police Department as our featured speaker. Please see the Events Tab of this website for all the details.

Our 4th Quarter meeting / Holiday Gathering  will take place in mid-December at the Chowder Pot Restaurant on Brainard Road, Hartford, CT. Exact details will be posted on the Website's Event Tab as the date draws nearer. I will also send out notification and reminder emails.

Thank you for your continued support of our chapter activities! Please feel free to contact me or any other board member with any questions or suggestions.

Best Regards,

Jeff Mann, CPP
