[ ASIS officer positions, descriptions, skill sets - PDF: ]
Clarification on nominations, voting, officer candidates, etc.:  As there has been low turnover in officer positions, these things need to be said because people need to know the how all of this works. And weíve gotten questions about what the process is and how it works from several members, some new, some not. You have to be qualified to be and perform as an officer in ASIS. How? It makes sense. Both the position descriptions of the four officer positions are posted publicly on the website at ROLES | COMMITTEES (PDF file above), as well as the very important skill sets or qualifications necessary for a person to possess to perform well. It is your organization, and you want skilled people as local leaders to be sure. So, no mystery about qualifications. If you meet them you can run for a position, as these are always open to new candidates every year. However, if you canít speak publicly in front of a group, donít know the policies and procedures generally in place for and by ASIS, havenít volunteered and shown your willingness to significantly help the local group and members in some fashion, performed possibly on the Executive Committee here or in another chapter, if your math skills are marginal and accounting isnít your thing, then being ASIS Chapter Treasurer or Chair of this organization isnít the position for you at this time. On another level entirely some people think they might be pressed into service, nominated and then set up to be elected when they really donít want to serve. This is fantasy. This will not happen. You cannot be nominated and elected without your permission, so you would merely decline, but itís simply, clearly, not the way things work. If after reviewing the descriptions of officer positions and necessary skill sets and you believe you are qualified and wish to serve, identify your desires to the current Chair. If you wish to serve in the future, then get more actively involved and volunteer to help and set your sights on a position and begin to work toward meeting those criteria. Nominations and announcements at the November meeting, voting in December, installation of officers in January.
