Whether you connect your management team to a network of like-minded leading security professionals or you volunteer yourself for the greater good of the industry, our various committees and interest groups help set the direction for many of SIA activities and priorities. Take a look and then become a volunteer!

Join the Community at SIA360
In fall 2016, SIA launched SIA360, a premiere online community available only for members, allowing individuals at member companies to share ideas, check in on projects, ask questions and connect on a daily basis. Your SIA membership allows you exclusive access. If your employer is an SIA member, you have access. Need help getting in? Contact SIA Membership Director Kevin Murphy.
Participate in SIA Events
SIA events are one way to maximize your engagement with other members. At our premier events like Securing New Ground, the security industry's top executive conference, or at SIA GovSummit, which connects the security industry with government decision-makers, the networking and relationship building is unparalleled. Free events for members like the annual Market Leaders Reception and The Advance (both held during ISC West) and SIAThere! (our series of networking happy hours which span the U.S.) and monthly webinars can get your further involved.

SIA operates over two dozen committees and working groups ranging from government relations to school security, cyber security, video surveillance, access control interoperability and so much. See the full guide to SIA committees and groups.
