On behalf of the InfraGard Arkansas Member’s Alliance (IAMA) Executive Officers and Board of Directors, I would like to personally welcome you to Arkansas chapter of InfraGard. Our purpose and primary objective is to increase the security of the Arkansas’ critical infrastructure. We do this through ongoing exchanges of information relevant to infrastructure protection and through education, outreach, and other similar efforts to increase awareness of infrastructure protection issues. The IAMA provides an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and information about security practices between private industry, government and academia.
The IAMA host quarterly seminars around the state to accommodate our membership geographically and encourage guests to attend as well. These seminars are available for you to attend at no charge, continuing education hours are available for attendees, and guests are permitted to attend until the final portion of the day known as the members-only share time.
In order for our chapter to serve as pillar in the security of our communities, state and nation, we encourage you to get involved. Within our chapter there are a variety of ways to connect with others in your field to share knowledge such as our 16 critical infrastructure sectors. These sectors include: Emergency Services, Communications, Information Technology, Transportation, Water & Waste Water, Chemical, Commercial Facilities, Dams, Defense Industrial Base, Energy, Financial Services, Food & Agriculture, Health Care, Nuclear Reactors, Government Facilities, and Critical Manufacturing.
We look forward to the opportunity of sharing information that will help us all stay abreast of potential threats.
InfraGard Arkansas Members Alliance (IAMA) President
Welcome to the Arkansas InfraGard Chapter! I have been a Special Agent for the FBI for 19 years and have previously served as the Strategic Partnership Coordinator in Little Rock and New Orleans Divisions. I have been in Little Rock for approximately 10 years and love it. I have investigated a variety of federal crimes over the years including: international terrorism, domestic terrorism, foreign counterintelligence and healthcare fraud. I am still adapting to my new roles as the InfraGard Coordinator and Private Sector Coordinator for the Little Rock Field Office. I feel privileged to be working with you and look forward to serving our leadership and expanding our membership. I am excited to see where the citizens of Arkansas take the InfraGard Program.
Honored to be in your service,
In an effort to support the protection of the critical infrastructure and key resources, the chapter is organized into 16 critical infrastructure sectors. This provides focus for the membership on the issues of the unique characteristics and conditions of each sector.
