Events and Networking
One of the most valuable benefits of your membership is the ability to network with and learn from fellow members. It is almost impossible to leave a MSA Event without learning something from fellow members that will enhance your business. MSA holds statewide meetings in Tupelo, Gulfport and Jackson. Each statewide meeting features 8 CEUs. The convention in Jackson includes a golf tournament, clay shoot, special guest speakers, and a trade show with over 50 vendors showcasing the latest and greatest in the security industry. Members attend at discounted rates. MSA also holds district meetings throughout the year in Gulfport, Hattiesburg, Vicksburg, Jackson, Meridian, Batesville and Tupelo. Meetings have relevant guest speakers chosen to help you improve your business. Members are encouraged to get involved in a convenient district near them to network, form bonds and grow with industry related professionals. Our power and influence lies within our members!
Government and Industry Representation
In addition to MSA's Legislative Committee, MSA has a lobbyist on retainer. Crowell Armstrong with Armstrong & Associates has proven to be a necessary and effective addition to the benefits of belonging to the association. He has successfully advocated and defended our interests in both state and local issues that would have negatively impacted our industry and the way we perform business in general.
