Serving the Association
Howard joined ASIS International as a member in May 1981. Since then he has remained an active member. When the opportunity to submit an application for consideration to join the board of directors was presented it was met with both humility and gratitude. Elections were held a year ago and he has now served on the board for the last 6 months. The opportunity to be a resource and serve the association and the industry are unparalleled. “I couldn’t be more excited to provide assistance, inputs and leadership in this new role, I am delighted to be in the company of so many dedicated volunteer leaders both on the board and throughout the association.”
Howard is reappointed to ASIS International International’s Council Vice President position for another two year term.

In addition, ASIS International Councils provide support to, and enhancement of, ASIS International educational programs and materials designed to meet the needs of professionals with specific security concerns and issues inherent to a specific industry.
ASIS International Councils provide a vital link between practitioners and the Society to ensure that only the most relevant and latest information on security practices is made available to ASIS International members.
