“We are pleased to add this important pre-conference workshop to the ESX education program,” said John Lombardi, president of CIA Security in Fishkill, N.Y. and chairman of the ESX Program Advisory Committee. “There are several hundred central station operators who could benefit from the distinction and discipline associated with a UL listing. This session offers a way to concisely review both the advantages and resource requirements of pursing a listing and is conveniently scheduled as a precursor to our exciting 76-session ESX seminar program.”
