In a recent announcement formally introducing its new president, Brian Ensign, BICSI stated that in the role of president, “one of Ensign’s main priorities is implementing the BICSI Board Strategic Plan.” The plan, BICSI added, “is of high importance to the association and its membership, and it is the foundation for staff priorities, financial stewardship, and continuity from one board of directors to the next.”
As such, over the coming year and beyond, focus will be placed on the following key initiatives.
- Modernizing and advancing BICSI’s credentialing program
- Finding new vehicles to connect with the emerging generation of ICT professionals
- Expanding outreach programs
“In addition, BICSI will continue to focus on global growth,” the association said.
In his inaugural address on February 2, Ensign specifically pointed to those three initiatives as areas of focus. The Tweet embedded on this page was sent during Ensign’s address.
Ensign holds several of BICSI’s professional credentials—RCDD, NTS, OSP and RTPM. He also holds the CSI credential offered by the Construction Specifications Institute. His two years as BICSI president will be his ninth and tenth years on the association’s board of directors. Most recently he served as president-elect, and previously was the association’s treasurer. “Throughout his 20 years of BICSI membership, he has been involved with multiple BICSI committees and has presented at BICSI conferences, conducted full-day training sessions and supported continuing education credits (CECs) in the development of training programs,” BICSI pointed out.
Ensign commented, “I truly appreciate the faith and trust the BICSI membership has put in me to lead this great association for the next two years. Along with the BICSI Board of Directors and staff, I will focus our efforts on achieving the goals set out in the BICSI Board Strategic Plan. This will also include the development of new task forces, third-party audits, a focus on human resources and careful management of the financial impact of these programs. I am committed to seeing these goals become accomplished to ensure the success of BICSI now and well into the future.”
