Young Professionals (YP) Committee
YP Liaison – Ian Henderson
Ian has been in the security industry for approximately 20 years, and has worked in a variety of settings, including training, quality assurance, and account management. Ian currently oversees contract security operations in lower mainland shopping centres, and he is also involved in training security staff in control tactics.
Ian has been involved with ASIS for the last ten years, and has participated in the Young Professionals Committee since it was formed in 2012. Ian is currently serving as the co-chair of the Young Professionals national program, and in that role he assists other chapters in planning and holding events.
Young Professionals Committee Duties:
The Young Professionals 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 young 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.
