Where are you today?

Posted By Bob Ogle, Monday, January 9, 2012

If you’re reading this blog the day it’s been published, we’re hopeful that you’re at the Leadership Summit in Irving, Texas. If you’re in the middle of a meeting, wait until you have a break, then read this so you can focus more intently.

Seriously, we hope you are at the summit. If not, we encourage you to attend next year. It’s not just about eating meals, networking and catching up with your friends and colleagues. We believe that at its core, this summit is about learning.

There are a lot of sessions targeted as classroom training, but that’s not what we’re talking about when we say "learning.”

It’s about gaining industry-wide knowledge and developing a broader perspective on where our electronic security industry is headed, why it’s going in a certain direction, and how it’s going to affect businesses such as yours. That’s why leaders (you) should attend.

The Leadership Summit has now been around long enough that folks know to put it on their calendar the second week of January. We see a lot of familiar faces and are glad you see the value. At the same time, we encourage you to spread the word to those not in attendance. For our industry to continue developing in new directions, we need fresh faces, new ideas and greater involvement. That comes from throwing the net wide, and finding committed individuals looking to contribute.

We’re pleased with the support ESA members and leadership show for this event, and other ESA-supported events throughout the year. Your commitment is visible, and we thank you. But we also want to ask you to spread the word, encourage new people to attend in the future. That’s something we all can do.
