About Us


Chapter Members and Visitors,

Welcome to our ISACA, Great Houston Chapter website!

We recently held our Annual General Meeting and one day gratis Security and Audit Conference July 21. We have not offered a gratis one day conference in a while, although all of our conferences are quite reasonable, and it was appreciated. As someone noted, “Free is always good!”

We had a good turnout, around 125, with approximately 85 staying to the final bell; it did help that we gave away several $100 certificates at the close of the day.

We had several folks who gave significantly of their time to both plan and serve our members and guests during the conference, and we will acknowledge them shortly on our website. However, one person I want to thank now is Mel McQueary, with HCC, who was able to help us rent the auditorium at their West Loop South Campus. We received many compliments on the space itself, and the location.
