The Security Industry Association (SIA) announces that, during its first board of directors meeting of 2001, immediately following its annual Security Industry Forum, the issue of participating in any further proposed unification activities was openly discussed. During the past eight months, SIA has participated in preliminary and exploratory talks, with leaders of the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) and the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA), designed to assess the feasibility and practicality of merging CSAA, NBFAA and SIA into a single association.

After reviewing and considering the issue, the SIA boards, by majority vote, decided to draft and issue a resolution to serve as the association’s official position regarding “unification” as it is currently framed. The resolution is as follows: “On Feb. 5, 2001, by majority vote, the Security Industry Association board of directors resolves to work with other industry associations to achieve a unified approach in expanding installer education, addressing legislative issues and driving product demand. Further, the SIA Board of Directors resolves that at this time there is no need to restructure SIA to successfully accomplish these objectives.”
