About the K. Wayne Snipes Award:


The K. Wayne Snipes award was established in 1989 and recognizes ISACA chapters that meet or exceed service goals by actively supporting local membership and, thus, the information systems audit and control profession. The award is given to the top chapter in four size categories—small (20-100 members), medium (101-300 members), large (301-800 members) and very large (more than 800 members) within each region. The K. Wayne Snipes Award is ISACA’s way of recognizing chapters that continually go above and beyond to provide excellent service and guidance. Chapters are selected by a group of peer leaders from chapters around the world, specifically the Chapter Support Committee, with help from the International staff.


Award recipients are determined based on the following criteria:


- Chapter membership growth

- Member service projects

- Chapter-sponsored educational events

- Attendance at chapter meetings

- Involvement with other professional organizations

- Compliance with ISACA International Headquarters

- Involvement on association committees or with

  association activities

During his time in office, Snipes achieved the largest number of new chapters and the largest membership growth in existing chapters.
