Call for Articles - Chapter Newsletter

Dear Members,

As part of our communications outreach, ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) is committed to producing two Chapter Newsletters each year.

As we approach the end of another year, the Singapore Chapter will be publishing its second newsletter in Dec 13. Other than updating members on past and upcoming events, we will again be publishing security-related articles of interest as part of education and knowledge sharing. The Singapore Chapter is seeking articles of interest from all members, which may relate to terrorism, physical security, executive protection, investigations, product counterfeiting, supply chain security, crisis management or business continuity management. The article may relate to current or emerging issues, best practices or challenges facing security professionals who are responsible for securing people, property and information in their organisations.

This will be a valuable platform to share your knowledge with fellow Chapter members and other security professionals. CPP/PSP/PCI holders will also be pleased to note that published articles may earn them up to 9 CPE credits.

Your article should be submitted in word doc containing no more than 1,000 words, which can be accompanied with illustrations such as diagram and/or photo.

Submissions close on Sat 30 Nov 13. I would like to encourage all members to contribute actively towards "A more connected and learned Chapter".

Regards,
Lim Choon Kwang, CPP
Hon Vice Chairman, 2013-14
Chair, Membership & Communications Sub-Committee
