Message From The Chair

Message from NTX-ASIS Chapter Chair:

It is midyear and it has been an honor to see the engagement of all the NTX Chapter volunteers. 

If you have not taken the time to renew your membership, please do so as soon as possible 2018 Membership registration. In order to continue receive information from the NTX chapter, you must be up to date in the corporate portal.

As always, LEAN was a huge success! We had over 700 people show up to support local area law enforcement.

Our monthly meetings have been great with some excellent speakers. The July meeting is quickly approaching, so register today! We continue to find opportunities to connect with our peers in Ft. Worth, so the July Luncheon will be at the DFW Airport. Also, our next After Hours Event will be on Thursday, July 26th from 6-8pm at the Legacy Food Hall in Plano! This will be a great opportunity to network. For this event we will have subject matter experts in the CCTV and Access Control fields available for attendees to learn from and ask questions. Stay tuned for future communications regarding this event!

Our website remains the focal point for the chapter communications. The NTX website is a hub of information and will point you to upcoming events that include our monthly luncheons, training opportunities, and outstanding networking events. It is important for members to register early for all events. We need to ensure we have adequate space and food for all attendees. If you would like to sponsor an event, please let us know!

I look forward to continuing to serve as the 2018 Chapter Chair.
