This year is a special year for the ASIS international Benelux Chapter: it has been 25 years since its inauguration. We proudly invite you to join in the celebration of this jubilee which will take place during the traditional Chapter Dinner on Wednesday 10th October and the Fall meeting on Thursday 11th October 2018.

The theme of the Fall-meeting, held at "De Koepel" in Breda on 11th October 2018, will be “Back to the future”. During this meeting, we will not only reflect on the past 25 years through a number of security themes, but the experts will also share their views on the future of security. Our Chairpersons  Arjo de Jong and Mark Tip will preside over interesting speakers and introduce our key note speakers Saïd Aberkan (Lead-Islam consultant to the Belgium justice inside the penal system) and Tom Sauer (senior lecturer in political sciences at the University of Antwerp). Moreover we will be presenting the ASIS Talent Award to one of our deserving students.
