Our SIAC Staff handle alarm management issues anywhere across North America. You’ll find us at conferences, state and national association meetings, and where local ordinance issues need our expertise. Sometimes we must fly to get there. Because we are a non-profit organization, we take every step possible to keep our traveling costs down. As much as possible, we have our staff members deal with geographic regions closest to them to keep expenses down and to use our contributors’ money wisely.
Over the summer, Ron Walters, our alarm ordinance expert, relocated to Southern California. Previously he lived near Fort Lauderdale, FL, so his attendance at meetings/conferences was frequently at sessions in the Southeast part of the U.S.
For those of you out West, you may find Ron in attendance out your way. There is a lot of work in California, both at the state level, and a number of cities where we are working with the electronic security industry to improve alarm ordinance provisions. We cannot continue this work without the help of our donors. Please take a minute to consider a SIAC donation that helps both the industry and your own business, by clicking here: http://www.siacinc.org/donate.aspx. We appreciate your support.
Ron is available to assist with SIAC efforts on the West Coast and will be working more closely with the California Alarm Association and other western ESA (Electronic Security Association) chapters. Expect to see Ron at more meetings in southern California – some relief for Jon Sargent, who has handled the entire state for more than two decades. Go get ‘em guys!
