Dear SCIP community members, 

We are very excited about the future of SCIP as we kick off 2019. SCIP continues to evolve to meet the never-ending rapid changes of the of business world, and we are honored to have you all part of this community. 

We would like to thank the SCIP Board of Directors for volunteering their precious time for the betterment and support SCIP and the community in 2018. Special thanks go out to Mary Ann Sarao for her guidance and efforts as the Board Chair in 2018. Amongst the many important additions for SCIP, we are excited welcome onboard a new Executive Director for SCIP and a new Board Chair in 2019.

Our goal continues to be to grow and expand the SCIP community and preserve and expand the SCIP’s leadership position in the industry as the GO-TO association for organizations to grow their business through the effective utilization of Intelligence and Insight methodologies, tools and business processes. SCIP will continue to have a global focus and outreach to embrace the entire intelligence community.

We have many great things planned for 2019 from the upcoming 34th Annual International Conference and Exhibition that is being held in May 2019 in Orlando, Florida. No other Intelligence association can match this history and heritage that SCIP has delivered at our programs over the last 34 years. We continue to support the needs of the SCIP community’s professional development thru our global programs such as SCIP China, April 2019 and our series of targeted educational and training bootcamps.

The future of SCIP has never looked as bright with the wonderful influx of talent and leadership in SCIP and from the SCIP Board of Directors and from you, the SCIP community, and we are committed to further galvanizing our world-wide commitment by planning a Europe SCIP event in the Fall timeframe (details forthcoming)!”

Thank you all for your support and commitment to SCIP and to the needs of your fellow members!
