The Monitoring Association celebrating 70th Anniversary

Thursday, January 2, 2020

McLEAN, Va.— The Monitoring Association (TMA) is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2020 with personal remembrances that will be shared throughout 2020 across all of TMA’s communications and a special celebration at TMA’s 2020 Annual Meeting, Oct. 24-28 in Marco Island, Fla.

“This year, as the TMA community joins together to celebrate this historic milestone, I am honored to be its president and to have the great and humbling opportunity to recognize the amazing men and women whose joint innovation, dedication, leadership, and tenacity have positioned this organization and our industry to advance and thrive for seven decades,” TMA President Don Young said in the announcement. “If our past is indicative of our future, I am certain TMA’s relentless commitment to excellence and its tireless defense of security monitoring will continue to propel its members to great success in all aspects of their business.”

What began as a collective effort on the part of eight, forward-thinking security industry leaders on a cold night in 1949 has grown and evolved over seven decades to become TMA, formerly the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), an internationally-recognized non-profit trade association that represents professional monitoring companies, security systems integrators, and providers of products and services to the alarm industry.
