ESA Opens Registration for the Young Security Professionals Rising Leaders Forum

Leadership and Team Building With the Green Berets


Irving, Texas (June 30, 2016) — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) has opened online registration for their newest event, the Young Security Professionals (YSP) Rising Leaders Forum that will be held on October 11-13 at Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, WA.  In addition to the early bird pricing, ESA has negotiated a special group rate of $192/night at Skamania Lodge that is available until August 31st.

The YSP’s are a national network of professionals providing industry-specific mentorship and professional development with opportunities to give back to our communities and impact the legislative landscape. This group is working diligently to change the status quo and provide networking, education and opportunities for our industry’s next leaders to grow and succeed.

YSP’s have partnered with Command Sergeant Major and Senior Enlisted Leader (retired) with the 3rd Special Forces Group and now CEO of Leader Solutions and Decision Support, LLC, Terry Peters to offer rising leaders  an event like this industry has never seen. Through a unique format the Rising Leaders Forum will  deliver career-changing leadership skills, networking opportunities, dynamic sessions, an impactful keynote presentation and educational seminars.

Rising Leaders from across the country will come together at Skamania Lodge which is nestled in the wooded forest of the Pacific Northwest and features an outdoor zip line, golf course, horseback riding, hiking, and whitewater rafting in addition to its meeting spaces, event halls, and remarkable views. The Rising Leader Forum will feature a morning workout led by keynote presenter Terry Peters and his team of retired U.S. Army Green Berets, a geo caching scavenger hunt, and multiple leadership and team building discussions. To lock down the discounted room, make reservations by calling Skamania Lodge at 844-432-4748 and let them know you will be attending the Electronic Security Association YSP event.

“At the Rising Leaders Forum you can expect your employees to learn leadership and team work skills specific to our industry and more importantly specific to our changing times. If you are looking to demonstrate to the ‘rising leaders’ in your organization how serious you are about their professional development, this is one event they shouldn’t miss,” said Robert Few, YSP Chairman.

The YSP council drove the formation of the ESA Mentorship Program and the Rising Leaders Forum will also serve as the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2016. Mentees will present their findings on how to tackle industry topics including workforce development, the customer lifecycle, and corporate social responsibility.
