I got my most recent edition of CSAA's Signals (complete with it's new waveform promotional art) and was reminded that the CSAA Fall Operations Management Seminar is coming up in November.

It brings back fond memories...

(cue flashback music and scene-disolve visual effect)

I had just started at SSN in September of 2008 and was still trying to wrap my head around all the security industry's three-letter-acronyms and just exactly how the industry ecosystem worked... what it looks like... My head was spinning. And that's when my editor told me I was going to go on a roadtrip down to Peabody, Mass to attend the CSAA's Fall Operations Management Seminar. I enjoyed the experience, depsite being nervous. I got some good video footage and met some pretty cool people, including Vector's Pam Petrow, CSAA's Becky Lane, and Soutwest Dispatch's Ty Davis (now with Life Alert)

I got a lot out of my visit to the Ops Seminar in '08. I haven't been able to attend them all since then, but I've covered the goings on...

If you're not doing anything Nov. 13-15... heck, even if you are... if you're involved in the world of central station monitoring, you could do worse than spend a few days in Chicago sharing best practices with the best and brightest in your industry.

Give a shout out to CSAA director of marketing and communications Monique Silverio if you're interested in checking it out.

Here's the release from CSAA on the upcoming Fall Operations Management Seminar:
