Happy Holidays from ISA

Happy Holidays from ISA!

As 2011 comes to a close, we reflect back on what has been a very busy year for ISA, including record attendance at the annual meeting that took place in Nashville along with increased course attendance and continued partnerships with the Northern Illinois University.

ISA is also proud to have welcomed 64 new candidates for membership this year!

We look forward to the New Year and all of the excitement that it is sure to bring.  We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new website for the Society during the first week of January 2012 – this has been an exciting and in-depth process and we are anxious to unveil the final results and culmination of member and task-force feedback.  Watch your email over the next two weeks for further details.

ISA is headed west for Assets 2012, which is taking place April 20-23 in Tempe, AZ at the Tempe Mission Palms. We’re also kicking off the educational courses early with offerings of both the Requalification and 15 Hour USPAP courses, taking place in January.

Due to the holidays, ISA Headquarters will be closed on the following dates:
Monday, December 26
Monday, January 2

We are looking forward to 2012 being another successful year for the Society as well as for our members! We wish everyone a very safe and happy holiday season.
