Ian currently oversees contract security operations in lower mainland shopping centres, and he is also involved in training security staff in control tactics.

NextGen Committee Duties:
The NextGen Committee is aimed at providing education and development to young careerists by providing a forum to engage and learn from security thought leaders, get involved with ASIS programs and activities, and connect with peers.
This group hosts networking, social and development based events throughout the year, bridging the gaps between the upcoming and seasoned security professionals.
While a NextGen professional is typically defined as under 40 years of age or an individual who has spent less than five years in the security profession, we encourage participation from anyone passionate about this initiative, regardless of age or experience.

Diversity and Inclusion Committee Duties:
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee is aimed to provide support and assistance to those in the security field who tend to be under-represented, including women and minorities. The committee also works to inspire under-represented individuals interested in entering the profession.
This group hosts multiple events annually, targeted to engage the under-represented security workforce and build a strong community. While this group’s benefits and programs are tailored for its target audience, we encourage and welcome the participation of all members who are dedicated to the support of diversity and inclusion in the security industry.
