PSSA Newsletter - December 2019

ISSUE 25 December 2019  | NEWS – 1 – As yet another year draws to a close, we are very much looking forward to the next few months with ISE, Intersec and Interact surrounding the Christmas and New Year celebrations. PSSA has stands at both ISE in Olympia and Interesec in Dubai and we would be very pleased to welcome you to our stand, where we would be happy to chat! After last year’s growth in membership numbers (+50%), we are on target to repeat this growth level again this year and I am fully expecting a further expansion of the membership as a result of our attendances at the exhibitions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those companies that have joined us in the last year or so and look forward to working together with you all. Due to the success of the Interact days, we have extended the next event to a 2-day programme, with day one being the usual UK model and the second day being Interact USA, where we have a number of presentations from high profile US presenters designed to encourage and support the interaction between UK and US organisations. We have booked the Interact Days for the 29th and 30th January 2020. Contact PSSA for details of how to book at . Please reserve your place quickly as we fully expect the event to be oversubscribed -we don’t want you missing out on what will be a really helpful couple of days. The Interact USA day has been made possible by our affiliation with the US Security Industry Association (SIA), where we now have reciprocal membership agreements and expect the interaction between the two associations to grow and develop over the coming years. Finally, I would like to re-affirm the commitment of PSSA to the continuous improvement of the quality standards within what is a very high-profile area of the security market and we encourage feedback and comment from all on how we can be better. Having said that, the performance of our members in the world markets is second to none and membership is fast becoming a benchmark for quality.
