ESA's Executive Management Professionals group plans initiatives in inaugural meeting

Irving, Texas (March 13, 2013) — Members of the Electronic Security Association’s (ESA) Executive Management Professionals (EMPs) group held their inaugural meeting during the recently completed ESA Leadership Summit to discuss new initiatives and programming for members.

The group, which is comprised of professionals charged with the strategic and financial leadership of electronic security integration and monitoring companies, met to review the results of their recently fielded research, the “Executive Management Priorities Survey,” plan new research and programming for the year, and discuss shared issues members are facing.

“It was great to hear from members of the group to get feedback on the programming we’ve already run and hear their ideas for what we can do together moving forward,” says Dee Ann Harn, chair of the EMPs. “The professional groups are designed for the sharing of best practices, discussion of industry-related issues and improve networking, and the members of our group are taking advantage of those opportunities.”

Issues discussed as potential topics for future EMP programming include the effect of Obamacare on small businesses, how to improve your company’s culture for employees and owners, and how to best work an event or tradeshow and maximize your company’s presence.

“We heard from multiple attendees that the economy and government involvement is something they’re increasingly focused on, from health insurance to the fiscal cliff and more,” says Harn.
“We’ll be announcing some of our newest initiatives shortly, and as always, members are encouraged to weigh in on the issues affecting their companies and how the EMPs can help.”

The full results of the Executive Management Priorities Survey and the most recent edition of the Executive Management Insights are available to members of the group in the EMP Resource Library at www.esaweb.org/EMPResourceLibrary.
