ESA is doing a great job on multiple fronts to help the electronic security industry.
ESA’s Leader Conference, recently completed in Orlando, is a major example. Started five years ago, it has steadily expanded its reach and scope to better prepare our industry and its leaders for a changing landscape. SIAC salutes ESA’s Merlin Guilbeau, the professional ESA staff and other contributors who annually meet multiple challenges to put together a quality program appealing to many professionals.
The Leadership Conference provides an excellent example of what to do to keep an industry vibrant: Look ahead, find cutting edge issues and open a discussion to bring together individuals who can deliver solutions. This year’s session did all that, and more.
One result of these types of efforts is increased membership retention. ESA has seen that number grow from 74 % to 87% the past two years.
ESA trained 4,400 technicians through its NTS program last year. All its major courses were revised. These are member benefits that save real dollars – ESA now has direct deposit for funds due the state (no more waiting on the volunteer treasurer to take $$ to bank).
The list goes on and on. Keep up the good work, ESA. Any dealers not participating are throwing away money and lost opportunities for networking and being a part of the national association that represents and assists them in every way. For more information, go to: http://www.esaweb.org.
