I have also been a 15 year member and Chapter Officer of the Institute of Internal Auditors. I was the first Chapter Chairman and one of the founders of the Fresno Valley Chapter of the American Society for Industrial Security. I passed the examination for the C.I.P.P. (Certified Information Privacy Professional), a certification granted by the International Association of Privacy Professionals. Approximately 27 years ago, LPI started providing document destruction services. Based on the same ownership, we are one of the five oldest companies in the country providing this service. We now have 14 employees.
I have been a board member for our 1600 member trade association, NAID (National Association of Information Destruction), and have served as the Chairman of the Certification Rules Board and Chairman of the Joint Task Force and spearheading the coordination of accreditation by ANSI of NAID certification. I am currently the Board of Directors Association Secretary and on the Board of Directors Executive Committee.
