Founded in 1950, TMA (formerly the Central Station Alarm Association), is an internationally-recognized non-profit trade association that represents professional monitoring companies.
TMA counts among its major goals:
- false alarm reduction;
- the development of industry standards to assure optimum central station performance levels;
- and the enactment of telecommunications laws and regulations that promote fair competition.
TMA's executive director is noted industry veteran Jay Hauhn; the current president is Ivan Spector, the first Canadian to ever serve in that role. Spector is also the president of Alarme Sentinelle/Sentinel Alarm, based in Montreal.
