Message from the President

All of our programs and events are in full swing this year! Our mentorship program is starting very soon, our monthly meetings are scheduled for the summer, and we just had our spring Happy Hour and our Community Service Day event.

For this month, we are gearing up for our Spring picnic and our annual cybersecurity conference, SECON NJ 2023. We are also partnering with InfraGard NJ and our members are now able to participate in some of their educational and networking events.

This year is an exciting time to be a member of our chapter, as we now have over 400 members!
