Security-Net, a global provider of security integration services, held its annual shareholders meeting in late January at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa in Newport Beach, Calif., an event that marked the organization’s 20th Anniversary.
The two-day annual meeting brought together representatives from the 19 member companies who make up Security-Net to review general business of the organization, provide strategic direction relating to its National Accounts program, discuss continuing education programs for employees, and to review expanding its partnership program with manufacturers. The annual meeting took place January 24-25.
“We’re doing a lot of National Accounts business,” said Joe Liguori, President of the Board of Directors of Security-Net, Inc. “As a result, we’re standardizing our procedures as an organization and providing additional education to our project managers so they will be better equipped to do their jobs in a marketplace.”
New for Security-Net this year is a project management certification course that allows two employees from each Security-Net member company to participate in an online training course. By September, Security-Net expects to have 38 project managers certified through the program.
“As an organization, we regularly certify our engineers and train our sales people,” said Liguori. “We feel it’s important to now provide our project managers with the same type of tools and educational support.”
Security-Net is currently comprised of 19 independent systems integrators located throughout North America, plus 4 systems integrators internationally.
The group focuses on the integration of end-to-end security solutions including technologies such as access control, video surveillance, emergency mass notification and perimeter detection systems in aerospace, commercial offices, university campuses, airports, government, utilities, hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Individual member companies, which make up the company’s regional locations, regularly share design solutions, troubleshooting tips, technology updates and marketing ideas to provide the most effective, up to date security management system for customers.
