CANASA and ASIS sign new agreement
According to a brief statement posted on the CANASA website, “CANASA is looking forward to the future of our alliance and believe strongly that this relationship will be of benefit to both associations and in turn the security industry.”
Patrick Straw, CANASA’s executive director, described the relationship as “warm and friendly” and said he hopes both organizations will benefit by leveraging each other’s strengths.
Mark Folmer, SRVP, ASIS International Group 6 (Canada), added that the organization is “very happy” an agreement was reached. He credited his predecessor Bill Bradshaw as well as ASIS Toronto Chapter Chair Jason Caissie for spearheading the initiative on behalf of ASIS.
“The idea of aligning and co-operating just makes sense,” said Folmer. “Synching two groups that have mutual interest means that we can jointly keep advancing the security industry. This is a win-win for both of our memberships.”
