The ASIS Chicago Chapter is among the top ten largest chapters within ASIS International, with over 700 members throughout the area. The goal of the chapter is to promote safety and security in every realm of the profession, including healthcare facilities, campus safety, corporate / commercial real estate, the public sector, critical infrastructure protection, and distribution centers.
ASIS Chicago utilizes a variety of forums, resources, and events to enhance the experiences of its members. Luncheons are held on the third Tuesday of every month (with the exception of summer months), during which members are provided an opportunity to network with like-minded professionals while also hearing from a foremost expert in the field. The annual Golf Outing is a popular ASIS Chicago tradition that allows security practitioners and vendors to come together for a day of spirited competition and valuable connecting. Joint events, held in partnership with the intelligence community, subject matter experts, or other Chicago-area security and law enforcement organizations, are offered regularly to actively-involved ASIS Chicago members. And, in addition to the numerous local and ASIS International events held in the area, members are provided access to exclusive content and resources created with the purpose of advancing security policies and best practices in real world situations.
ASIS Chicago members can expect to remain connected and updated of various events and developments in the Chicago area through regular mailings and newsletters, all of which contain information on upcoming ASIS International opportunities and programs. The volunteer board and chairs of the chapter continually strive to deliver the most up-to-date intelligence through innovative techniques while also working to offer insightful, captivating, and practical presentations that professionals of all areas can use to strengthen the security culture in their spheres of influence.
The chapter accepts new members throughout the year. Membership can be obtained by joining ASIS International and listing Chicago as your local chapter. After successfully joining the International organization, local chapter dues can be paid for the price of $22.09, which covers a small portion of administrative fees, such as the website and access to International resources. Erin Parks, the Chapter's Membership Chair, can answer any questions or comments regarding the process.
