PSA Security Network Hosts Well-Attended Industry Conference
PSA Security Network’s annual PSA®- TEC (Training, Exhibits and Conference) in St. Charles, Ill., attracted industry professionals from across the United States for a weeklong offering of intensive training coursework, product and services exhibits, an awards program, and networking activities.
PSA is an electronic security cooperative with members specializing in the design, installation, integration and maintenance of safety systems. Held May 5-9 at the Pheasant Run Resort & Spa, the conference was attended by company owners and senior managers, sales and project managers, purchasing agents, and technicians.
“We are very pleased with the turnout for our annual conference,” says Bill Bozeman, president and CEO of PSA. “We saw an increase in the number of member companies sending employees to PSA-TEC and we had the most vendor participation ever. This is a good sign for our event and our industry; it shows the educational and networking opportunities offered at our annual conference are invaluable to our membership and vendor partners.”
The 2008 PSA-TEC also brought members face-to-face with vendors during a variety of evening networking events including the opening mixer, a vendor appreciation awards banquet, an evening hospitality event, and a jam session showcasing the musical talents of conference participants.
“Each year we see an increase in the number of outside security professionals who are not members of PSA taking advantage of the training and networking opportunities PSA®-TEC offers,” says Bozeman. “There has been a perception that our conference is for PSA members only but this is not the case. All security professionals can, and do, gain tremendous benefits through the education tracks and networking events we have put together.”
