About Connecticut ASIS
The Connecticut Chapter of ASIS was formed in 1956, and was one of the founding chapters of an organization that has grown to over 240 chapters today. While the Connecticut Chapter of ASIS was formed and headquartered in Hartford, a city known as the "Insurance Capital of the World", the chapter has grown into a diverse organization of security professionals working in different types of facilities, disciplines, and organizations. The common thread is that all of the members share a passion for the protection of the people and businesses in their charge. Connecticut ASIS (CONASIS) hosts a wide range of events and meetings, with the aim of furthering the security profession, and the development of those involved in it.
