CSAA Announces New Leadership, Logo at Annual Meeting in Hawaii

LANAI, Hawaii – A sky-blue ocean, a pristine beach and perfect weather didn’t distract attendees at the Central Station Alarm Association’s (CSAA) annual meeting from getting down to the business of selecting a new board, examining industry-related issues and introducing a new logo.

More than 300 attendees took up 85 percent of the rooms at the Manele Bay Hotel on the Hawaiian island of Lanai from Oct. 17-22. CSAA Executive Vice President Steve Doyle says a majority of members at one of the highest-attended meetings in years cheered the event as the “best ever.” And it wasn’t just because of the paradisial surroundings.

“Going all the way to Hawaii is a long haul. We got surprised we had such an exceptional turnout. The program was especially strong and emphasized new technologies and the false alarm issue,” says Doyle.

Midway through the meetings, CSAA members elected new leadership. Richard L. Sampson, president of American Alarm and Communications Inc., was elected to a two-year term as CSAA president, replacing outgoing President Mel Mahler.

Another new look for CSAA was its new logo. Doyle says the old logo had two problems. For one, it was tough to reproduce on business cards. For another, CSAA’s name was nowhere to be found on it.
