Alsup’s predecessor, Ambassador Joseph R. DeTrani will remain with the organization as a member of its board of advisors.
Alsup’s role as vice president of policy provided him with exposure to council and task force activities, public-private solutions on a number of intelligence and national security challenges, including cybersecurity, homeland security intelligence and security policy reform. Alsup will be directing INSA’s daily operations and providing strategic guidance regarding membership, external partnerships and policy initiatives.
Letitia Long, incoming INSA Chairperson said, “Chuck knows INSA well- its staff, its members, its recent history and goals for the future. He is the ideal person to lead the organization at this time. I look forward to working with him to develop opportunities for INSA and its members to constructively engage and support the intelligence and national security communities.”
“Chuck has been a tremendous colleague and confidant during my tenure, repeatedly helping INSA bring government and private sector leaders together to discuss their policy and security challenges,” said Ambassador DeTrani. “AS a longtime colleague of Chuck’s, first at Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and now at INSA, I know he is deserving of this opportunity. I look forward to seeing the organization continue to thrive under Letitia and Chuck as I transition to the INSA Board of Advisors.”
