ASIS is the largest international educational organization for security professionals, with over 38,000 members worldwide. ASIS is dedicated to increasing the effectiveness and productivity of security professionals by developing educational programs and materials that focus on both the fundamentals and the most recent advancements in security management.

On January 28th, 1974, the Florida West Coast Chapter of A.S.I.S. assumed the obligation of and was chartered as, Chapter 30 of the American Society of Industrial Security. A.S.I.S. is now known as ASIS International. Our Florida West Coast Chapter serves as a local resource for information on various security and management skills by exposing members to all disciplines so that they can become key participants in the modern business environment.

The Florida Chapter has a proud 40-year history. We are a three-time Chapter of the Year award winner (I.B. Hale Award). And as with any great organization, our true strength is our membership. With close to 250 members and growing, this chapter includes top professionals from every security related field in the Tampa Bay Area.

In an effort to both preserve our heritage and recognize the outstanding contributions of the individuals who volunteered their service, knowledge, and skills to the betterment and perpetuation of this Chapter, we memorialize our Chapter leaders.
