ESA Membership: What’s In It for Me?

Posted By Joel Kent, Friday, August 23, 2013

When contemplating whether or not to join ESA, many companies ask: "What’s in it for me?”

Well, in short, a lot.

In the 1800s, immigrants came to the United States and formed burial societies. Members of these "social clubs” would secure land for cemeteries, set up English classes and prepare their members for U.S. citizenship. Essentially, it was immigrants looking out for other immigrants.

Today, ESA fills the role of life facilitator for its members. Through various programs, ESA helps members survive and thrive within the industry.

For example, ESA’s National Training School (NTS) is the equivalent of English as a second language. With a broad offering of NTS courses and certifications, students can learn to speak the language of technology and acquire technical skills that can advance their careers. ESA members also receive discounts on online and classroom training. For more information, contact ESA Training & Certification Sales Manager Patricia Allen by phone at 972-807-6806, or email at Pat.Allen@ESAweb.org.

Another benefit of being a part of the ESA tribe is Security America Risk Retention Group (SARRG). SARRG is an errors and omissions and general liability insurance company that is owned by its policyholders. These alarm companies pool their insurance premiums to control the cost of insurance. Where else can you find an insurance company that lets industry veterans decide on claims?

ESA also saves its members money on services they use daily through the Member Savings Program. Many members have reported savings of 20 percent on shipping, payroll, office supplies and much more.  

Now, think about the cost of an ESA membership. With these benefits, you can probably recover the costs in the first year. To find out how much you can save, reach out to ESA’s Member Service Center at 972-807-6801.

If you’re not an ESA member, I strongly encourage you to consider joining because there is a lot in it for you, the association and the industry as a whole.
