    Messages from the Board Greetings, Welcome to the start of a new Chapter year! I hope this finds everyone happy, healthy, and enjoying a reprieve from the summer heat. The new Board of Directors is energized and diligently working to build upon the success from last year and incorporate member feedback to make this another great program year. As always, our goal is to support and promote the IT control, governance, and audit professions of membership. Based on the annual membership survey and on the diverse geography of our membership we will strive to provide training opportunities in Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Kalamazoo. The Board developed a schedule of meeting dates, locations, and topics based on your feedback. This schedule will be posted on our Chapters website under the Events Calendar page. Please note we will post additional topic/speaker information for program events and details regarding our first social/networking event as we finalize plans. In addition, based on feedback, some of our Chapter goals this year are:

    To sponsor three one-day training seminars.

    To host bi-monthly membership meetings/training sessions.

    To offer certification study opportunities.

    To reach out to members, students, and those in education.

    To reach out to prospective members and the business/regulatory community.

    Last year we updated the Chapter by-laws; creating five new Board positions. During the last election, we filled three of those new/additional positions! However, we still have two Board vacancies and always appreciate volunteers for program activities. Please contact any Board member or me if you are interested in volunteering at any level. Thanks for a great 2011-12 chapter year and we plan to make this one even better! Remember to check our website WMISACA and stay tuned for additional email/social media notifications. Sincerely, Timothy J. Kubu, CIA, CISA President ISACA Western Michigan Chapter

    Dear Members, June's Annual General Meeting (AGM) at MSUFCUs new facility was a great success. Speaker Phil Yanicks presentation on FDIC IT Examinations was beneficial to both individuals in the banking industry and to individuals in other industries and provided insight to the processes and methodologies of examinations, scopes, and obstacles. Phil's dynamic speaking kept the audience engaged during his presentation. WMISACA received positive feedback from attendees on Phils presentation; including satisfaction of the topic, delivery, and on Phils knowledge and expertise. Thank you Phil and thanks to all of you that attended!

    Also, congratulations to Steve Schneider who won the Apple I-PAD that was raffled off at the AGM. Through the course of the year, we will be holding various raffles at select Chapter meetings.

    In July, I turned over Chapter Leadership to your new President Tim Kubu and the Chapter's new Board of Directors. As Past President, I am confident that your new board is comprised of great individuals that are working hard to strive for excellence. However, they need your and my support to ensure that we are meeting your needs as a chapter member. Please consider volunteering in any way you can, even if it is only to give your input to improve our Chapter. Thank you for making my term of office a Wonderful Experience. It was my honor to serve you as your President. Best Wishes! Bob Kern Past President
