Included as part of ESA business was the unveiling of the new, much-anticipated ESA logo by Public Relations Committee chair, Dave Simon of Broadview Security. Another highlight included a breakfast presentation by John Galante of AE Ventures regarding the new 2011 Leadership Summit format which will consist of a two-day hosted event followed by two days of traditional summit activities including association meetings, seminars and networking events.
Overall corporate sponsorship for the summit was provided by GE Security, with Honeywell providing sponsorship for the awards dinner, SARRG and Diebold sponsoring the Wednesday breakfast, ADI sponsoring Wednesday’s lunch, and Altronix sponsoring the Chapter Appreciation reception.
