Dear Technology, Privacy, and Security Section:
In October of 2022, the NSBA established a new Section on Technology, Privacy and Security. We are excited about the opportunity to support this new Section. The inaugural section meeting is being scheduled for the week of November 14 - I will be able to send a formal save the date with the finalized information on Monday. We are still soliciting nominations for Secretary, Treasurer, and four at-large members of the executive committee. If you are interested in these positions or would like to hear more, please email me directly.
You were pre-emptively added to this Section because you have indicated an interest in this content in the past. If you are new to using online communities, here are a few quick videos. If we have made a mistake and you would like to be removed from the community, please send me an email directly.
As a way of kicking off the new Section, Bob Kardell has organized three, one-hour ethics webinars on Cybersecurity. We hope you will join us:
