Chapter Elections 2020

The following board members are stepping down this year:

  • Eric Nieuwland – general board member.
    Eric has helped promote information security and our chapter for over eight years. He remains involved with our chapter but wants to wind down his board work.
  • Mark Tissink – secretary.
    Mark has held the position of secretary with great dedication and skill since the end of 2016. Mark expects a family expansion soon and is also busy with his work. He shifts his priorities to family and work.

Both are not eligible for re-election.

So we may hold our second elections soon. Whether this is necessary and how we are going to do this is laid down in the internal regulations (HHR) of our foundation. The steps are broadly:

  1. announce who will step down (from October 1, 2020)
  2. announce candidates put forward by the board to fill the vacant post(s) (November 1, 2020)
  3. give (ISC)² members registered with the chapter the opportunity to become candidates (until December 1, 2020)
    1. if there are candidates: organize elections from which the constituency chooses the board (February, 2021)
    2. if there are no candidates: install the candidates the board proposes (February, 2021)

The announcements referred to under 1 and 2 above will be added below this message. For 3, we have sent all registrants an email.

The board explicitly requests anyone who wants to stand for election to report to the board. In addition to filling the 2 seats of the resigning board members, the board intends to appoint additional general board members when suitable candidates are found.

Do you want to be a candidate for election? Sign up preferably via the contact form on our website (“Register”), or by e-mail. You must register before December 1, 2020. Indicate which post(s) you are interested in and your competence: general member and/or secretary. If you believe you are a suitable candidate to lead one of our committees, please also indicate for which committee(s).

Details on the voting procedure will follow later.


Only (ISC)² members “in good standing” at the time of election can vote and be elected.
