The Monitoring Association Appoints Two New Directors

Association management professional Illeny Maaza and security industry veteran marketer Leigh A. McGuire join The Monitoring Association headquarters staff

The Monitoring Association (TMA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Illeny Maaza to the position of Director, Membership and Programs and Ms. Leigh A. McGuire to the position of Director of Marketing and Communications. Both association management professionals joined TMA, an internationally recognized non‐profit trade association that represents professional monitoring companies, in December 2018.

“Illeny and Leigh each bring a unique scope of knowledge, experience, and talents to their new roles within TMA,” stated Celia Besore, MBA, CAE, executive director, TMA, adding, “As TMA looks to build upon its firm foundation of excellence across the security industry, these two new additions to our team of professionals position the organization to advance its strategic goals in the core areas of membership, education, advocacy, and standards.”

Maaza comes to TMA from the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) where she served as Business Analyst and Member Group Liaison. Prior to ATA, she held the positions of Director of Certification & Systems Integration at Idealliance and Manager of Customer Solutions at the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Mazza brings a wealth of experience and expertise in project management, membership, and customer service to her new position in TMA.

McGuire’s career in the security industry began at ADEMCO (now Honeywell) on New York’s Long Island. After a short tenure in the company’s advertising and commercial marketing division, she relocated to Virginia where she joined the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) in 2000 and, later, ASIS International in 2008—serving both security industry organizations in various marketing communications, public relations, and event management roles. McGuire’s expansive skill set coupled with her security industry tenure and network open distinct and valuable new growth opportunities for TMA and its member companies worldwide.
