CSAA Members: Join us for the CSAA 2015 Long Range Planning Meeting!

The Central Station Alarm Association International Long Range Planning Meeting will be held January 21-23, 2015. Open to all CSAA members who wish to participate in planning the future of CSAA, this year’s meeting has been planned in a convenient location with a new consolidated schedule to make it easier for everyone to attend. The meeting will be held at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio, Texas.

Centrally located in the south-central part of Texas, San Antonio is easily accessible from all parts of the United States and Canada, and the hotel is just 8 miles from the San Antonio International Airport (SAT). The Marriott is just steps away from the world-famous San Antonio Riverwalk with premier shopping, dining and entertainment, and the Alamo, one of the nation’s most storied and revered landmarks, is within easy walking distance.

If you are interested in CSAA and want to have a say in its future, plan to join us in San Antonio January 21-23 for the Long Range Planning Meeting.

See the schedule below for meeting times, followed by the topics under consideration.

There is no registration fee. Breakfast and lunch are included both days. To register and for assistance with the best rate at the Marriott Rivercenter, contact John McDonald at meetings@csaaintl.org or 703-242-4670 x17.
