“CIPS has been the premiere professional network that has driven my career development. Not only have I grown professionally by learning from my peers’ experience, it has also offered me the rewarding opportunity to contribute back to IT professionalism through my involvement both locally and nationally.”

Chris Kendrick, I.S.P., ITCP
Senior Consultant, xwave
Past-President, CIPS Nova Scotia

"It was through CIPS that I recognized the importance of a Professional Code of Conduct. My CIPS connection is an important way for me to tell people of my commitment to Professionalism. It's a visible way for me to advertise my resolve to be trustworthy in all dealings with clients and the public."

Robert J. Fabian, FCIPS, I.S.P. (ret)


"I have found that CIPS has provided me a forum ... to prepare me for today and the future."
