Tommy Whisnant joins James Marcella in leading The Monitoring Association’s advocacy efforts on the state and local levels.

McLEAN, Va. – The Monitoring Association (TMA) recently announced the appointment of Tommy Whisnant to the co-chairmanship of its Government Relations Committee.

In his new role, Whisnant will join seated Committee Co-Chair James Marcella, Axis Communications, in “leading TMA’s state and local advocacy efforts and often partnering with the Alarm Industry Communications Committee (AICC) on legislative initiatives,” according to the TMA press release.

Whisnant, who was named co-chairman of the TMA Government Relations Committee, is currently the compliance manager for North Carolina-based CPI Security.

“I am honored to have been selected to represent TMA and the Government Relations Committee as Co-Chair. I am looking forward to working with the great people on this Committee and this amazing Association,” said Whisnant in the TMA press release.

“Our industry is constantly changing, and we are seeing an extreme amount of traffic with proposed law changes,” he said. “The Committee is committed to bringing visibility, representing the members of TMA and making decisions based on the best interest of our membership.”

TMA’s New Government Relations Leaders

“Tommy is a consummate professional whose combined knowledge and experience will be a valued asset to TMA and its members in this new volunteer leadership role,” said TMA President Morgan Hertel in the association announcement.

“In a time when our industry is facing some significant legislative and regulatory issues, I am confident in the leadership and insights that James and Tommy bring to TMA’s Government Relations Committee.”

“James has been a valued member and volunteer within the TMA community for more than a decade. He possesses quite a broad spectrum of knowledge relative to security industry technology, best practices, and business trends, which make him ideally suited for this important role within TMA,” said Hertel in February following Marcella’s appointment.

“His unique insights into key legislative issues impacting security industry businesses, as well as the state and local legislative process, are especially valuable to the TMA community at this time,” she said.
