The president of the Canadian Society for Industrial Security (CSIS) is stepping down after three terms in office.

Graham Ospreay of Newmarket, Ont. has guided the society through some
difficult times  including the sudden departure almost two years ago of
executive director Gordon Pinder. Since then Ospreay and CSIS executive
director, Bob Marentette, have worked to build and maintain membership
in the society.

Nominations are now being accepted for the position of president of
the society.  The term for this position is for two years and anyone
interested in this position should contact Bob Marentette for further
information at

Any CSIS member may nominate a
member for this position and is required to submit in writing with
their proposal (which is required to be seconded) and have the
nominee’s written permission to stand for election. If required, voting
for the president’s position will take place at the Annual General

The Annual General Meeting of CSIS will be held in
Toronto at the Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Road starting at 1
p.m..  An agenda for this meeting along with any proxy votes will be
sent to members 45 days prior to the Annual General Meeting.


CSIS annual conference will again be held in conjunction with the
CANASA’s Security Canada Central Conference. The CSIS Conference will
be held at the Toronto Congress Centre from October 18-19. The
Conference will be focusing on convergence and offer sessions on 
topics such as IP-based video, intelligent video, converting to an IP
based video system and single platform systems. Other sessions will
include presentations on Workplace Violence and Insurance.

All members will be sent more information on the conference by the end of June month.
