President's Letter

It has been a pleasure to serve as president for this chapter over the past 3 years. Having a great group of board members makes the role much easier and with that, I am happy to turn the presidency over to Kathleen whom I see as a dedicated and motivated board member.  I am confident she will serve our chapter well and bring fresh ideas to aid in our continued chapter growth.  

Tom Hart, 2012 – 2015 SC Midlands President

Welcome to the new Chapter year!

I am your new ISACA Midlands Chapter 54 President!  I have been working with the ISACA Chapter for many years.  I was Vice President in 2008 and 2009 but then I moved back to Wisconsin for a brief period of time – until the snow drove me South last year!  I then had the pleasure of re-joining the Chapter as Vice President again.

I am excited by all the amazing changes which have transpired in my absence!  Membership has grown and we are consistently offering useful and timely training!  We have some great training coming up:  Stu Henderson is back on July 22nd to walk us through TCP/IP on the mainframe, and we will have a local speaker (Brian Kelley from AgFirst) on August 19th to talk about Security and Auditing Across the Entire Data Flow!  Sign up when you receive your personal invitation!

I do have a favor to ask of each of you:  Please look into your lives and see if you have time to dedicate to our Chapter.  We have a few open Board Positions (Vice President, Education Director, and Social Media Director) and we need your help!  You’d be joining a great team of professionals who work to better the Chapter every day, as well as receive CPEs and 25% off training events!  Think about it, and let me know!

Thank you, members, for recognizing the value ISACA membership offers you!  We work to add value to your membership!  If you have any comments or concerns – or simply want to chat – I can be reached at!

Here’s to a great year!

Kathleen Hall,
2015 – 2016 SC Midlands President
