You may not have seen us recently at your alarm association meeting, but our SIAC reps are out there. We listen to your needs, and provide materials, advice and training as necessary to help improve the way our industry collectively handles alarm management issues.
In just the past two weeks, for example, our staff have visited and met with alarm industry officials in 22 communities. That’s 11 per week between our core members of Tom Sweeney, Steve Keefer, Jon Sargent, Ron Walters and Glen Mowrey.
Where have we been? Here are some of the bigger names you may recognize from those two weeks: The Alarm Association of Florida; AIREF (the Alarm Industry Research and Education Foundation) Research Project; Alarm Association of Florida – How to Work with Law Enforcement and Build Practical/Lasting Working Relationship; California Alarm Association ; Nevada Security Association.
Sometimes we join you on a conference call. Sometimes we testify for your local association in front of the city council. Sometimes we meet with you personally. And at others, we give a presentation to your state or regional association. We’re out there for you, traveling, sharing information, giving you quality information on the lessons learned across North America. Call us if you need help, and if you’d like to help us out with a donation, click here, and remember we are a non-profit organization and survive on your contributions: http://www.siacinc.org/donate.aspx.
