Proposed new Bylaws for ISACA Silicon Valley (SV) Chapter

The ISACA SV Chapter Board is happy to announce that we have updated our Chapter Bylaws. The updates to Bylaws are approved by the ISACA global office. We request our members to review the Bylaws (please click herefor the copy) & approve in the meeting on October 18th, 2018. Please note that the meeting is open for all to attend, however, only ISACA SV members can vote to approve.
Our Bylaws were not updated for more than a decade, except we changed our fiscal year last year from Jul - Jun to Jan-Dec. The Board felt need to change the Bylaws to meet with the current & future requirements. ISACA also published model bylaws & advised all the Chapters to review the current bylaws & make necessary changes. We compared our Bylaws with the model Bylaws & many other ISACA Chapters of our size and made the relevant changes to our Bylaws.
As this is a Special Meeting of the members, we would give additional $200 raffle prizes in the meeting, every attendee will have a chance to win a $100 or $50 (2) gift card.
