i-SIGMA Board Approves New Committees

September 10, 2019

2020 Nominating Committee

Next year will mark the first election for i-SIGMA, concluding the tenure of the interim board that is overseeing the assimilation of NAID and PRISM International for its first 20 months.

In preparation for the election, the board has approved the appointments of four highly regarded industry veterans to the 2020 Nominating Committee.

They are:

  • Don Adriaansen, CSDS, TITAN Mobile Shredding, Doylestown, PA
  • Dawn Connelly, All Points Mobile Shredding, Stuart, FL
  • Scott Reis, Datasafe, San Francisco, CA,
  • Thomas Seibert, Jr., Business Records Management, Inc., Oldsmar, FL

Chairing the 2020 Nominating Committee is Tom Fetters of Iron Mountain, who, as the Immediate Past President of the i-SIGMA Board, is designated to serve in that role per the associations’ bylaws.

The 2020 Nominating Forms will be distributed to all eligible i-SIGMA representatives in the coming months. The election will be by online ballot in March of 2020, with the new Board of Directors installed at the 2020 i-SIGMA Annual Conference on May 15, 2020.

Insurance Oversight Committee

Additionally, the i-SIGMA Board of Directors feels the association could do more to help members control increasing insurance premiums and has created the Insurance Oversight Committee (IOC) to do just that.  Initially charged with promotion and oversight of i-SIGMA’s Downstream Data Coverage professional liability product, the board also instructed the committee to examine other ways the association’s buying power can be used to improve all of the various insurances that are commonly purchased by members.

The board has approved the appointment of Brock Miller of Shred Northwest (Portland, OR) to chair the committee.

“I firmly believe if members knew more about the value of Downstream Data Coverage it would be far more widely adopted,” said Miller. “I am also excited about exploring options with other types of insurance. I think we’ll find we have some leverage.”
