Hello from beautiful Vancouver!
I’m here, of course, for that special west coast KnowledgeNet meeting being held at Vancouver City Hall. We will have more than 100 people in attendance. I’d say it’s pretty good momentum to try and repeat this or something even larger next year.
Being here for a KnowledgeNet also gives me an opportunity to let you know what’s going on in other local chapters across the country. We have 11 active KNets in cities all over, serving 1,700 members. For some people who live in more remote areas where we don’t have a large enough population to start a KNet, we encourage members to nonetheless get organized and patch into other meetings using technology. KNets are a great way to learn more about the issues privacy pros are facing and, at the same time, they help further your network. It’s one of the best and most popular programs run by the IAPP around the globe. If you’re not participating in one now, let me know what the hold up is.
Of course, KnowledgeNets are one way for us to get together, but our biggest party of the year is the annual Symposium in May. I’m mentioning it now because if you have an idea and want to be considered as a speaker next spring, now is the time to get your proposal in. Click here to be brought to the speaker proposal page.
Have a great weekend.
