A Message from the Chairperson
The ASIS Granite State Website and the ASIS Granite State Chronicle Newsletter offer valuable information to each member and all our friends on current events and future activities. Both publications offer users a direct avenue to communicate with the Chapter leadership team and between peers and colleagues.
Both publications are receiving a new "face" as we are continuously update the format and presentation to be more attractive.
Our goal is to update the website on a weekly basis, but occasionally it might be bi-weekly. Make sure you visit the site frequently so you may keep up with the latest news.
Hope to see everything at our September 2018 meeting.
