In mid-February, senior executives from every NASCO member company were joined by executives from a dozen other security and industry related companies to participate in the two day NASCO Private Security Industry Leaders’ Roundtable held at the Ritz Carlton in Florida. With seating at capacity, the program featured a wide range of speakers and discussions on industry developments, security officer standards, labor and employment issues, new training for officers, workforce issues, cybersecurity, and other topics. Also, held in conjunction with the Roundtable was a NASCO “Legal Forum” meeting which featured speakers on arbitration agreements, marijuana employment issues, and key litigation involving contract security companies. The invitation-only event has grown in size in recent years primarily due to the growth of NASCO membership whose members, a mix of large, medium and small employers, now employ over 350,000 security officers across the U.S. While unfortunately some non-member companies had to be turned away from the event due to space and other limitations, there are no plans to increase the size of the event due to the desire of NASCO members to keep the setting small and conducive to greater discussion and social interaction.
