Celebrating 25 Years of IASIR at the 2018 Conference
IASIR was founded in 1993 by a farsighted group of regulatory administrators who realized that by joining hands they could enhance their ability to regulate and promote professionalism of the private security, private investigative, alarm and related industries. Now, 25 years later, IASIR’s membership has grown to include most state and provincial government regulatory agencies, as well as law enforcement and industry members from across North America and increasingly, other parts of the world.
2018 Speaker Presentations Now Posted in Members-Only
IASIR's 25th Anniversary Conference, held Oct. 24-26 in Scottsdale, Ariz., was an exceptional event. Under the theme of Navigating the Regulatory Landscape, attendees explored regulatory trends from the early days to the present, as well as the current regulatory challenges and opportunities facing the security, investigation and alarm industries.
Most speaker presentations are now available in the Members Only section of IASIR's website. Of course, these documents do not do justice to the robust conversations and initiatives sparked by our expert presenters, but they offer the framework for continuing dialogue and action.
Check out the official conference program for the session descriptions and speaker biographies. And watch for announcement of accompanying video we hope to provide soon!
