ASIS is the place to be if you are looking to expand your knowledge base or just to reconnect with friends and colleagues. I have been an active member of ASIS for over 25 years and always look forward to the annual seminar and exhibits. Theirs always great educational sessions and you can find the latest security technologies on the exhibit floor.

When I am not in a session or on the exhibit floor, I will be networking and promoting the ASIS School Safety and Security Council. For those interested in School Safety and Security I took the time to review the program schedule and provide information on the councils sponsored sessions.

ASIS INTERNATIONAL 2016 ANNUAL SEMINAR AND EXHIBITS will also introduce its inaugural Security Week. Security Week is designed to help educate small business owners and leaders of community organizations on the fundamentals of preparedness and protecting soft targets.
