There are plenty of educational opportunities this year at ESX in Nashville, with seminars divided into five program tracks: Business Development and Management; Central Station Operations; Installation and Service Management; RMR; and Sales and Marketing.
The Central Station Operations track includes a seminar that may be of particular interest to anyone who’s interested in keeping track of federal regulations that could affect our industry. "Federal Legislative and Regulatory Issues on the Horizon for Monitoring Companies” will provide valuable updates about wireless and wireline regulation at the federal level.
The panel discussion features three attorneys who serve as legal counsel for the Alarm Industry Communications Coalition (AICC): Ben Dickens, John Prendergast and Mary Sisak, all of whom are from the firm of Blooston, Mordkofsky, Dickens, Duffy and Prendergast. The session will take place on Thursday, June 26, from 2:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Room 101B at the Music City Centre.
AICC is a committee composed of representatives from ESA, the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), the Security Industry Association (SIA), and major alarm companies and manufacturers. The committee acts as a conduit between the alarm industry and regulatory agencies, as well as members of Congress. It also monitors developments at the federal level affecting the ability of the alarm industry to use telecommunications technology in providing protection services.
