That time of year again. Time for (ISC)2 members to get out and vote. Frequently I get questions about the board of directors in general and I often counter with "did you vote"? This tends to be met with a glazed over look.
Look folks, if you're an (ISC)2 member you should be taking the time to look at your slate of candidates for the board of directors. This is your organization and if you don't vote...well...

Take the time to acquaint yourselves with the slate of clients. If your particular candidate didn't make it through petition be sure to understand that they can be part of a write in campaign. The key issue to keep in mind is that it needs to be the name that they're registered with (ISC)2.
This is your organization. You need to educate yourself on the candidates that are running. Remove that doubt.
GET OUT AND VOTE!
