About Us

ASIS International is a worldwide organization dedicated to strengthening the global security landscape by providing Security Professionals with resources, educational programs, and developmental opportunities that can be applied across a broad spectrum of interests.  By providing Security and Law Enforcement Professionals with numerous networking opportunities at both the local and national levels, the organization continuously works to promote excellence and leadership in the security management profession.​

The ASIS Chicago Chapter, a local subset of the international organization, is among the top ten largest chapters in the organization, 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.  This is accomplished by bringing together practitioners from every field and allowing them to support one another through the sharing of knowledge, ideas, and experience.  The Chapter also utilizes its various security providers and vendors, who champion the latest technology and developments in system upgrades and integration.

ASIS Chicago utilizes a variety of forums, resources, and events to enhance the experiences of its members.  Luncheons are held on the third Thursday 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.

Security and law enforcement professionals committed to protecting their communities and properties all play an important role in promoting the ASIS Chicago Chapter mission:  Helping Keep Chicagoland Safe!
