The ESA Training Trust Fund Board of Trustees (Trust) was approved by the ESA Board of Directors in October of 2010. The purpose of the Trust is intended to provide a distinct legal entity into which monies can be contributed by participating employers for the exclusive purpose of creating and administering an employee welfare benefit plan providing apprenticeship and training programs for the benefit of participating employees, and for defraying reasonable expenses for administration.
The Trustees have full authority to create, implement, and administer the Trust Fund and the apprenticeship and training plans(s). The Trustees may take any action they deem necessary to fulfill the purposes of the Trust Agreement and the apprenticeship and training plan(s). The Trustees may carry out their powers through the means of motions, resolutions, or through the implementation of administrative policies and rules.
Governance As a trade association governed by a voluntary board of directors, the Electronic Security Association works through its executive staff and various committees and task forces established by the board to fulfill its mission.
To accomplish its policy and governance responsibilities, the board creates committees and charges them with specific areas of responsibility to meet the association's mission and goals. The executive staff consults with and supports committee programs and activities.
The appropriate role of the committee is to make recommendations to the board concerning policy and new strategies.
Committees provide a venue for members to participate in the life of ESA. Members gain professionally and personally from the contact with colleagues, and future ESA leaders often emerge through committee involvement.
The President shall recommend to the Board of Directors, and the Board of Directors shall establish such committees as are necessary to achieve the objectives of the Association. The President shall appoint the chairperson and members of each committee. Committees may be abolished by action of the Board of Directors. Unless the Board of Directors provides otherwise by resolution, each committee shall conduct its business and take action in the same manner as the Board of Directors conducts its business pursuant to the ESA Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws. Committees shall report to the Board of Directors and to the Members, if so directed, by the submission of the minutes of their meetings and by such other means as are desirable or appropriate. A member of a committee shall have the right to vote on all committee matters regardless of such member's voting status or lack of status as a Member of the Association.
Board Members Under the leadership of the board chair, trustees work together to set the agenda and accomplish the charge of the board, ensuring that the committee proposes sound policies and develops imaginative and viable programmatic proposals.
Meeting Schedule The ESA Training Trust Fund Board of Trustees meets on the second Wednesday of each month.
