ESA to move offices

The Electronic Security Association will be relocating its offices to a new headquarters at the end of the month, just down the road from its current location in Irving, Texas.

According to a statement, the new building has 8,000-square-feet of space and is adjacent to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The new facility will create a centralized location for ESA’s National Training School (NTS), which will provide the organization with the opportunity to host attendees from across the country in a classroom setting designed to accommodate as many as 30 students.

"As we evaluated the needs of our members and the future of NTS, we realized that there would be tremendous room for growth by bringing our training in-house," said ESA Executive Director Merlin Guilbeau. "The new facility gives us the location, the space and the functionality we need to make training a positive experience for students coming from almost anywhere."

In addition, the expanded space will also allow ESA to have a centralized member service center in which staff members will be able to quickly and easily communicate in a comfortable, open environment thereby helping to improve member support.

"We’ve been on a fast track for the past two years, introducing a new name, a new logo and branding, and two new websites," Guilbeau said. "The new location is the natural continuation of that growth."
