2020 Executive Strategic Partnerships Create Significant Industry Impact
With all the chaos and unsurety 2020 brought, ESA became even more vital for member companies and the pro-installed industry that rely on ESA’s network, government advocacy outreach, training and more. The association’s Executive Strategic Partners (ESPs) – a distinguished group of key manufacturers and service providers serving the electronic and life safety security industry – stood strong in support of the association and the channel at large.
ESA’s Executive Strategic Partners invest in the association to support initiatives that significantly impact members’ businesses and the industry. In 2020, their support helped the association to provide the industry with free CEU training courses when work slowed.
“This program allows us to partner with key manufacturers and service providers that are looking to make a significant impact on the industry,” said Merlin Guilbeau, CEO of ESA. “There are key factors we look for in our strategic partners: They must deliver a quality, reputable product that allows our members to better run and grow their businesses. Each one of these players not only check that box, but they also make a significant impact on the installation, integration and monitoring channel — by investing in the association to support vital programming.”
It is through these compelling partnerships that ESA, a non-profit organization, is able to fulfill our vision and mission of being indispensable and relevant as well as build a community that provides resources, advocacy, connections and education for electronic security and life safety professionals.
