It can often take time to navigate opportunities when first joining a large global association. Krysten McCabe, past ISACA Board Director and former member of the Audit and Finance committees, Awards Working Group and the Journal Review Team, recalls her experience finding her niche.
“I liken ISACA to going to a large university. Until you get involved, it seems really big and overwhelming. But once you do, you start to reap the benefits,” McCabe said. “I think everyone has a place. It's just taking the initial step to figure out where that is, and having confidence in yourself that you can actually make a difference in the organization, no matter where you are in your career or where you live.”
Over its nearly 50 years, ISACA has been presenting members with a wide range of volunteer opportunities, including assisting at conferences, helping to update certification exams and reviewing articles.
