It’s said that the people make a business. We’ve been blessed at SIAC to have many great companies and individuals support our cause, and work towards common goals. Over the past couple of years, we watched Comcast XFINITY not only enter the electronic security business, but also step forward to strongly support SIAC financially and with its people.
Comcast XFINITY is a top ten financial supporter of SIAC. When Comcast entered the security market, they quickly realized the importance of our effort and stepped up to the plate with a contribution that placed them in top ten supporters. With active participation and their financial support, it’s abundantly clear they are fully committed to SIAC and our industry.
As a non-profit entity, SIAC survives based on contributions made by donors. No less important though are the people who also step forward to help on the causes we work on. Comcast XFINITY, for example, has people like Doug Bassett, Roy Pollack and Doug Valenski, among others, who work hard and diligently day after day to make sure our industry is well-represented on issues faced at the local, state and national levels.
Our cause is improving alarm management practices and relationships with law enforcement. We share resources to accomplish this, and sometimes we cross into other areas to help out, similar to Comcast. Issues such as licensing, permitting, writing effective alarm ordinances and other legislation that affects security installations can all fall under our umbrella. We’ve found that Comcast shares its people and experience with us so we can better deal with all these issues, which can intertwine with SIAC’s mission.
There is strength in numbers. Comcast XFINITY has helped provide SIAC with additional strength through the sharing of key staff members on causes we work on. That makes it easier for us to do our job, and for this we are thankful to Comcast XFINITY, its staff, and others who step forward in their financial and resource support of our mission.
