ORLANDO, Fla. — To engage electronic security contractors in the Sunshine State, the Electronic Security Association (ESA) will launch a new chartered chapter, ESA of Florida.
The new chapter will offer a program of media relations, online promotions and face-to-face networking events. ESA of Florida will also provide technical and business education via the National Training School (NTS). The training will cover the full range of security technologies, including video surveillance, access control, integrated systems, interactive services, intrusion and fire alarms. NTS currently has a list of courses approved by Florida state regulators for initial licensure and renewal.
Additionally, the chapter will launch an annual ESA of Florida Convention, which will be co-located with the ESA Leadership Summit in Orlando, Fla., for 2013-2015.
ESA Treasurer David Koenig will serve as chair of the ESA of Florida Development Task Force to guide the chapter launch. The task force plans to reach out to existing and prospective members to confirm and refine plans for the chapter's initial activities and to identify leadership.
As the fourth most populous state, Florida has hundreds of electronic security integration and monitoring companies. Additionally, the state is home to more than 60 ESA member companies, according to ESA President Dom D'Ascoli.
"We look forward to dynamic and sustained growth through the programs and initiatives of our newest chapter, the ESA of Florida," he says.
