CSAA looking for 2009 Central Station Excellence Awards entrants
Get the Recognition Your Company and Employees Deserve! The CSAA has announced it's looking for entrants for it's annual Excellence Awards. Three years ago, CSAA initiated the CSAA Central Station Excellence Awards program to recognize the industry's central station, central station manager and the central station operator that best exemplified excellence in central station operation. In every industry, there are outstanding companies, managers and operators who all perform to the highest levels and standards. In fact, these are the companies and people that are constantly exploring new ways to raise the standards of performance and quality in an industry. The Board of Directors of CSAA feels that it is fitting that we continue to recognize the efforts of extraordinary companies and the extraordinary people who make them work. The CSAA Awards are open to all UL Listed and/or FM Approved Central Stationsâ€”including company-owned, proprietary, and wholesale (third-party) central stations. This year CSAA will again recognize the best central station and individuals with three distinct awards: The Central Station of the Year Award The Central Station Manager of the Year Award The Central Station Operator of the Year Award The winners will be announced and the awards conferred at the CSAA Awards Breakfast on June 24, 2009 during the 2009 Electronic Security Expo in Baltimore, Md.
