President's Message - Brad Duffy President
Members and Colleagues!
It's hard to believe that this is will be my last message to you as President. The last year has been exciting, productive and overall successful.
As we finish up what's been a long winter for some, and get ready to head into spring, we have so much to look forward to and prepare for. Registration is now open for Hit the Hill which will be April 29 through May 1. Be sure to secure your spot and plan your travel. This is a very crucial time for us to represent our industry and advocate for important legislation. It's also a great event for networking and getting more information about NCISS and what we do. Information about the event, along with registration instructions can be found on the NCISS website.
NEW Member Referral Program
I am very excited to announce that we have a new Member Referral Program. Effective immediately, NCISS will offer a membership credit to any member in good standing that signs up a new member. The credit will be $25 per each new member that enrolls, and will be capped at $175, which is the cost of annual membership. To qualify for the credit, the new enrolling member must not have been a member for at least the past two years. If you have any questions about this, please contact Karen Beers at
It's very important that we continue to recruit and grow in numbers and in our message; rewarding our members for bringing new people onboard is a great way to encourage and support this.
Thank you for all that you do- I look forward to seeing our continued success, with new and existing members in 2019.
See you all in Washington!
Brad Duffy  
NCISS President
