The Electronic Security Association has announced plans to launch a new
chartered chapter, the Electronic Security Association (ESA) of Florida, and will
take the ESA Leadership Summit to Orlando, Fla., in 2013.
ESA of Florida will focus on the top challenge of the electronic life safety
and security industry in Florida – stimulating demand in the commercial,
institutional, industrial, residential and governmental markets. A sustained
program of media relations, online promotions and face-to-face networking
events will generate inquiries for members and inform and educate prospective
ESA of Florida will also provide high quality technical and business
education via the National Training School (NTS). Importantly, NTS training
will cover the full range of security technologies including video
surveillance, access control, integrated systems and interactive services in
addition to intrusion and fire alarm training. NTS currently has a list of
courses approved by Florida state regulators for initial licensure and renewal.
ESA of Florida will strongly embrace new technologies transforming the
security industry, such as hosted and managed services, architectures for video
and access, mobile app integration, and home and building control integration.
ESA of Florida will also seek to create connections for members to prospective
allies such as IT VARs and systems integrators, custom A/V integrators and
residential and commercial builders and architects.
An important aid to the development of the association will be the
production of an annual ESA of Florida Convention. This event will co-locate
with the ESA Leadership Summit in Orlando, Florida for 2013-2015. This
co-location will provide meaningful education and powerful networking events,
along with the attention and participation of top suppliers and great media
