Good Day InfraGard Chicago Members Alliance,
It seems as though we have turned the corner towards Spring in Chicagoland. Enjoy the next few weeks. ????????
As a follow up to my recent election to the ICMA Board of Directors and my recent appointment to Programming Director of ICMA please accept my very humble thanks on the confidence seen in me to be a leader within our community.
On to programming:
There is an upcoming Quarterly Meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 19, 2022 from 8am to Noon. This hopes to be our very final Virtual-only meeting; the August meeting will be held both virtually and in person.

During the May 2022 ICMA Meeting we will:
1) Discuss recent changes in the Infragard.org portal.
Did you know that less than 30% of our nearly 1,800 ICMA members are considered ‘Active‘ by the FBI? Active members receive more timely security information & updates and are considered key partners in protecting our National infrastructure.
2) Two esteemed speakers from academia have agreed to speak to our chapter on Russia and Ukraine respectively:
We will hear from Dr. Robert Person, PhD from West Point: An Associate Professor of International Relations at the United States Military Academy and Director of Curriculum for West Point’s International Affairs Program.

Also speaking, Dr. Petia Kostadinova, PhD from UIC: An Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at UIC.
