Besides assisting the board with planning logistics for our events, registering for meetings and events, then checking in when you attend, provides you with self-service documentation you can print out to support your CPE credits if you are audited.

The Minnesota Chapter of ISSA (MN ISSA) serves the Minneapolis / St. Paul twin cities area, greater Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Our membership, over 250 strong and growing, is drawn from the multitude of large corporations, small businesses, government entities and educational institutions in the area. They span all levels of career growth, from students and entry-level to senior management, and cover all industries – finance, medical, government, education, retail, technology, services, and more. This depth of experience and breadth of knowledge provides a dynamic networking environment and a cadre of great individuals to draw from for education, guidance and thought leadership.


Our bi-monthly meetings, quarterly AfterHours events, and other activities provide local subject matter experts and national speakers, sponsor interaction, and networking opportunities. All events are open to ISSA members and non-members alike to provide educational opportunities for practitioners of all types. We simply ask that our guests, after they’ve personally experienced the value of our organization at two meetings or events, consider joining ISSA as full-fledged members – they gain not only membership in our local community, but all the benefits provided by ISSA international. Many organizations, recognizing the value, willingly sponsor their employees for continuing professional development.


Our award winning program has been recognized twice as ISSA Chapter of the Year (2002, 2016).
