The Chapter hosted a virtual meeting on June 25, 2020. In attendance were the President of ASIS International, Godfried Hendriks, CPP, our Assistant Regional Vice President, Capt (Ret'd) Garth Gray CPP, PCI, PSP. Also in attendance were Chapter Chairpersons from the Dominican Republic, Mr. Peter Backman, and The Bahamas, Mr. Gamal Newry.

Here are some screen shots of the occasion...

ASIS President Godfried Hendriks CPP gave an inspiring update on his vision for the Organisation.

He stayed awake and alert despite the time difference. Great leadership.

 

Our guest speaker, the Managing Partner of Nunes, Scholefield, DeLeon & Company, Mr. Lowel Morgan, addressed us on insurance and vicarious liability issues due to the advent of COVID-19 and the increased practice of employees working from home.

 

Our actively participating members were represented by a mixture of live and canned images.

Thank you letters...

Good morning President Godfried,

I would like on behalf of the Executive and Members of the Jamaica Chapter of ASIS International to formally thank you for gracing us with your presence at our Chapter Meeting last night (early morning in your case).

Whereas your relaxed and open communication style allowed for easy assimilation, however, the fact that your address and the Q & A that followed lasted 45 minutes was self-evident that it was both captivating and well received. Needless to say, we also have to thank you for the record turnout of 43 persons on the call.

What was, however, particularly impressive was that you did not just merely pay us a courtesy call but that you spent almost 2 1/2 hours with us as at some ungodly hour in the morning. It is no wonder that many of us believe that ASIS International is most fortunate to have someone with your sensitive and responsive leadership style at the helm at this critical time. 

Once again thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to impart your immense knowledge and experience, and for sharing your insightful views regarding our members' concerns. I hope one day that you will find it possible to join again but this time in person at perhaps one of our annually held calendar events. More anon.  

Best regards,

 

Captain (Ret'd) Basil A. Bewry, CPP, PCI, PSP

Dear Mr. Morgan,

I would like on behalf of the Members and Friends of the Jamaica Chapter of ASIS International to take this opportunity to formally thank you for an excellent presentation that you gave at our monthly Chapter Meeting yesterday. 

It was the consensus of all in attendance that the information you shared on Employer's Liability and Work From Home Policies was both educational and enlightening, and I might add a little unsettling. The fact that you held your audience in rapt attention for over 45 minutes and well beyond our normal meeting hours speaks volumes for your oratory skills

Once again thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to impart your immense knowledge and expertise in such matters and needless to say we at ASIS stand ready to extend a helping hand should the need ever arise.

Best regards,

 

Captain (Ret'd) Basil A. Bewry, CPP, PCI, PSP
