BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

LOBBYIST

In addition to MSA's Legislative Committee, MSA has a lobbyist on retainer.  Crowell Armstrong, with Armstrong & Associates, has proven to be a necessary and effective addition to the benefits of belonging to the association.  He has successfully advocated and defended our interests in both state and local issues that would have negatively impacted our industry and the way we perform business in general.

NETWORKING

One of the most valuable benefits of your membership is the ability to network with and learn from fellow members.  Active professional networking is vital to career growth.  Networking gives members fresh ideas, raises their profile, gives access to job opportunities, builds confidence, and provides knowledge, advice and support.

EVENTS

It is almost impossible to leave a MSA event without learning something that will enhance your business.  MSA has an annual convention in Jackson with a trade show, clay shoot and golf tournament.  There are State Meetings in Tupelo and Gulfport.  Each of these meetings offers 8 CEUs.  MSA also holds district meetings throughout the year with industry relevant guest speakers.

 

EDUCATION

The Mississippi Security Association Training School provides training courses necessary for certification under the Mississippi Electronic Protection Licensing Act.  We offer required CEUs at MSA events to keep your license current.

The Mississippi Security Association has partnered with Consolidated Insurance to offer MSA members a one stop shop for all your insurance & benefit needs.  With years of service to the security industry, Consolidated offers a unique knowledge of our industry and an unmatched suite of offerings.

The False Alarm Reduction Association is committed to reducing false alarms.  Members are employed by government and public safety agencies, along with alarm industry and other professionals.  Their goal is to assist you in reducing false alarms in your jurisdiction, company or alarm site.  We do this by facilitating the exchange of information, influencing legislation and establishing relationships and partnerships with other groups interested in false alarm reduction.

Mississippi Security Association members are automatically members of the National Electronic Security Alliance (NESA).  NESA was formed to promote communication between state associations and to influence and monitor electronic security and alarm industry federal legislation.  Leaders of the state associations formed NESA to help them solve common problems and to help them serve their members.
