Would like to find out a few things before joining ISACA:
a) attached is the payment page: is the membership fee of $40 for the country's
local chapter mandatory (ie we must pay for it)? I can't uncheck any of the boxes
b) which of the items are annually payable?
c) without joining or signing up for the exam yet, is there any way to check the
scheduled dates for CISM? Any non-member site to check or anyone who is
a member could share this? I don't want to purchase the exam too early if
I'm not ready yet to take the exam
d) If I purchase the exam, what's the validity period to take the purchased exam?
6 months, 1 year?
e) Lastly, any idea if CISM or CISA certifications are more in demand in the industry?
