Chapter Meetings

Monthly Chapter Meetings

Regularly scheduled chapter meetings are the first Thursday of each month, with some exceptions for holidays and special events. Chapter meetings are the perfect place to get connected with the Raleigh ISSA Chapter. Our meetings kick off with a Back-2-Basic session at 5:15, a casual dinner at 6PM, giving members and guests time to meet, mingle and socialize. After dinner, we run through our official chapter business and follow it up with the scheduled security presentation or mini-training.

  • The largest professional IT security organization in the area
  • Over 450 members from commercial, academic, banking, healthcare, government and military industries
  • Meets monthly, on the first Thursday of each month, at the RTP Headquarters building (12 Davis Drive, RTP)
