The Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) announced Monday that Charles Alsup, the organization’s vice president of policy, will become the organization’s new president in 2016.
Alsup succeeds outgoing president Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, who will remain on the board of advisers. Alsup has served as vice president since 2011 and previously served in the federal government as associate deputy director of national intelligence for policy, plans, and requirements, where he helped develop the national intelligence strategy.
INSA is an intelligence and national security organization that combines leadership from the public, private and academic sectors to develop solutions on U.S. intelligence issues. It has about 150 corporate members and over 1,000 individual members, the organization said.
As INSA vice president, Alsup was involved in council and task force activities that aimed to provide solutions on security challenges including cybersecurity, homeland security intelligence, and security policy reform.
“Chuck knows INSA well – its staff, its members, its recent history and goals for the future,” Letitia Long, an incoming INSA chairperson, said in a statement. “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.”
“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,” DeTrani said.
