2022 Elected Officers
Chapter elections for 2022 board members
Our chapter elections were held November 9, 2021. That was the official hand-off to new directors at the December meeting. This is intended to smooth out the transition process giving outgoing officers more time to help incoming directors transition into their new positions.

Article VII of the chapter bylaws sets rules for elections. Candidates may self-nominate until 3 days before the election (Sat Nov 7). At that time, ballots will be emailed to members from the Election Team, which consists of chapter volunteers who are not running for any positions. Ballots are due Tuesday, November 10 at the meeting, when the Election Team will tabulate and announce the results.
Any positions which remain open at 3 days before the meeting will not appear on the ballot form. The Election Team will preside over a voice vote at the meeting for those positions. Technically those positions are vacancies to be filled by appointment, a procedure from Article V Section 4. We'll use the election voice vote to select a candidate for each remaining position, for approval by the Board at its next meeting.
All positions up for election
All the positions on the ISC² Silicon Valley Chapter Board of Directors are up for election each calendar year. These are volunteer positions. Please consider if you can help with a turn at one of them. Like all volunteer groups, it's essential for the health of our community to always look for more volunteers as people's availability changes over time.
Up for election will be President, Secretary, Treasurer, Communications Director, Membership Chair and Training Director. Responsibilities and authority of these roles are described on the chapter officer roles page.
The position of Treasurer is open for appointment immediately to fill a vacancy.
Who can run?
Holders of (ISC)² certifications (CISSP, CSSLP, SSCP, CCSP, CAP) in good standing who live or work in Santa Clara or San Mateo Counties may consider themselves members of the Silicon Valley chapter. That includes voting and eligibility to serve on the chapter's Board of Directors.
There are two other (ISC)² chapters in the Bay Area. Alameda and Contra Costa Counties are within the East Bay Chapter's region. The City & County of San Francisco has its own chapter.
