CANASA joins Global Life Safety Alliance
CANASA recently announced it has joined the Global Life Safety Alliance (www.globallifesafetyalliance.org) as an associate member.
The alliance was formed in 2018 as a means to connect and assist in the progress of the life safety and security industry, work with other security and safety markets and share research information. The organization will share what has been researched by members and will also make the findings available with the industry at large.
CANASA is looking forward to the opportunity to share any information with our members and non-members. Updates and information, as they become available, will be announced by the Global Life Safety Alliance.
Facebook group launched
CANASA has launched a new Facebook group which provides a forum for Canadian security professionals to ask questions, seek advice and network with others in the industry.
Join your fellow industry experts as they explore solutions to their security-related issues and network with other experts who can assist you.
AGM and awards
CANASA will be conducting our Annual General Meeting in Richmond, B.C. on June 17, following the Security Canada West trade show.
This meeting is open to all but voting is restricted to CANASA members only. Please RSVP no later than May 11, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Part of the Annual General Meeting is our awards ceremony — the opportunity to recognize outstanding contributions to the association and the industry.
Nominations close April 29, so if you know a deserving CANASA member who has made a positive contribution, please visit www.canasa. org for all the information.
