ASIS Omaha Chapter 59 - Advancing the Security Profession Statewide

Welcome to ASIS International's Omaha Heartland Chapter!

Hello!  I’m Mike Reiner, Chair of the Omaha Heartland Chapter of ASIS International.  Whether you are a newcomer to the security industry or a seasoned security professional, we welcome your participation in the activities of our chapter!

With over 34,000 members worldwide, ASIS International is the leading professional organization for the global security industry, but it can be overwhelming to be a member of such a large international association.  That’s why I’m glad you are visiting our chapter website.  Chapters are the heart and soul of the ASIS community, creating professional development and networking opportunities at the local and regional level. ASIS members are assigned to one of over 240 chapters around the world.  Our chapter has approximately 150 members from eastern Nebraska, western Iowa, and southern South Dakota.  We meet monthly at various venues in and around Omaha to network with our security colleagues and stay informed on the global and local security landscape.  Topics we’ve covered during the past year included human trafficking, combating violent extremism, and lessons learned from a high-rise building evacuation.  If you have suggestions on security topics you’d like to explore at an upcoming meeting or if you would like to host an upcoming meeting, please contact me.

By providing members with access to a full range of programs and services, ASIS International leads the way for improved security performance through:

  • Career Development
  • Certifications
  • Current Information
  • Networking
  • Professional Development
  • Standards and Guidelines

One of the best ways that ASIS International can enhance your career is through certifications.  Four distinct ASIS certification programs are recognized worldwide as the gold standard of excellence in security management.  The first rung on the security management career ladder is the Associate Protection Professional.  The capstone credential is the Certified Protection Professional.  ASIS also offers the Professional Certified Investigator and Physical Security Professional certifications.  The board members of our chapter can help you to determine the right certification for you and prepare you to earn your credentials. 

Our chapter normally hosts three major annual events. Our golf tournament at the Oak Hills Country Club was cancelled this year due to the pandemic. We hope to return to the course in June 2021. Each fall, we host a Law Enforcement and Security Awards ceremony to recognize the outstanding achievements of local police, fire, and security practitioners. This event will not be held in 2020, unless conditions significantly improve. Finally, we normally close out the year with a social and shooting competition at Tactical 88. A decision on this event will also depend on conditions. If you are interested in helping to plan and execute these events, please let me know.

In closing, welcome to the Omaha Heartland Chapter of ASIS International!  We hope that our organization will help you to grow as a security professional and we look forward to your involvement!
