IAPSC Annual Conference Chair 2015
As the 2015 IAPSC Annual Conference chair, I would like to personally thank all of the attendees, Conference Committee members, and especially our sponsors for being part of a great conference in Napa, CA. This year’s speakers were exceptional from Joe McDonald sharing his insights on compliance to our panel discussion on Gaining Support from the C-Suite to Jim Hill sharing the latest information on drones and how they interface in the world of security. For those of you that were not able to attend, you really missed out on an incredible opportunity to network, learn from industry experts, and build on your own business.
We are looking forward to hosting next year’s conference at the Mills House in historic Charleston, South Carolina from April 17 to April 20, 2016. We will begin preparation for the conference in the coming months and are looking forward to seeing everyone there. So mark your calendar today and plan on joining us for another outstanding conference.
See below for some photo highlights from the conference.
Speaker presentations are available for members to download from the Members' Library (log-in required).
A big thank you to the conference Sponsors & Exhibitors -- details are available in the Members' Library (log-in required).
