Word From the Chairman
Greetings fellow chapter members,
Another month down and the year is flying by. We hope that all our members are finishing the summer off with some fun family activities. Thank you to all who continue to support the chapter and attend our monthly meetings. This past month, we made some significant and exciting changes in the chapter leadership; you can read about in the below section. Next month, September, is GSX! We encourage all members to participate, either virtually or in person. For those who are attending in person, we will try to get together for group photo, so stay tuned.
As the year is moving along, the board is thinking about 2024. If you have some ideas or suggestions on how the chapter could be better and more valuable to its members, we want to hear from you! Also, if you have that feeling in your gut that you could volunteer on the board or on a committee, please let us know! Contact us at email@example.com. Until next time!
Jared Oakden, CPP, PSP

New Chapter Members
Welcome to our new and returning chapter members. We hope to see you at the next chapter meeting!
The Kansas City Chapter wants to extend a big thank you to Dr. Christopher Walker from Texas Christian University for meeting with several law enforcement officers aspiring to retire and transition into the private security profession. Dr. Walker delivered the keynote address at the chapter's annual Physical Security Showcase event and elected to stay an additional night to sit down with officers from around the Kansas City metro. The event was coordinated by Terry Owens, and accompanied by Michael Betten, CPP (KC LE Liaison) and John J. Riotte.
Law Enforcement Agencies represented included North Kansas City, Overland Park, Kansas City MO and the United States Army. The evening provided a wealth of information for the participants, a chance to network and thoroughly enjoy everyone's stories. Dr. Walker's insight and experience offered a wealth of information to those in attendance. We encourage all chapters to do the same as the experience was one to remember.
