The Minnesota Chapter of ISSA hosts several different types of meetings throughout the year.


GENERAL MEETINGS


MN ISSA holds its meetings on a quarterly basis with lunch, networking and multiple speakers and sessions.  Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday in the months we have meetings.  Doors open at 11:45 AM for networking and lunch with a meeting start time of 12:20 PM.  Meetings wrap up at about 4:45 with a sponsored happy hour following.


You are welcome to join us as a guest if you’re not currently an MN ISSA member!  If you find value in attending our meetings and want to continue to participate, then we do ask that you become an ISSA member. Your membership provides great benefits to you and helps provide the funding needed to keep our chapter going.  We appreciate it!


These meetings will rotate locations throughout the metro to align to our goal of reaching as many people as possible.


AFTERHOURS


Our AfterHours format is more casual and interactive than our regular chapter meetings and is designed for those not always able to make regular meetings, for individuals from our larger local security community, as well as those who simply enjoy discussion with their peers and industry leading thinkers.



Come out and join us – you’ll get informative presentations in intimate settings at great local venues, good food and refreshments, plus plenty of opportunity to refresh and build your network with valuable connections.


Registration is required for our events to help with logistics and to provide self-service validation of attendance for any continuing education requirements. Please click on Details and Registration to RSVP.

Limited on-site registration will be available but may delay entry, so please register ahead of time whenever possible.

    FAQs

    Are non-members and guests welcome at meetings and events?

    Yes, we welcome individuals at large from the security community to join us for any of our events. We simply ask that, after experiencing personally the value of our community at two events, individuals consider joining ISSA for the additional benefits that membership provides.

    Why do we have to register to attend meetings and events?

    Besides assisting the board with planning logistics for our events, registering for meetings and events, then checking in when you attend, provides you with self-service documentation you can print out to support your CPE credits if you are audited.

    Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

    No, printed tickets are not necessary, you will still be able to check in.  However, having a printed or electronic copy of your ticket does speed up the check in process.
