October 13-17 in Palm Beach is a “Can’t Miss” Event for Monitoring Industry Leaders; 2018 Plans Reflect Attendees’ Desire for a More Streamlined Schedule
The Monitoring Association announced the keynote speaker for its 2018 Annual Meeting (October 13-17 in Palm Beach, FL). David Horsager, CEO and best-selling author of “The Trust Edge,” will present Build Trust or Die Amidst Change: How to Build Trust, Lead Others & Grow Revenue through Times of Transition.
“Change is constant–and the speed of business is faster than ever before,” says Horsager. “How do you build trust and keep things running smoothly during major business transitions or uncertain political climates? In this session, I’ll show leaders how times of change are the greatest opportunity to build trust and achieve business results in the face of uncertainty.”
Attendees will benefit from these key takeaways from Horsager’s presentation:
- The single most important driver in communication during times of transition
- How to accelerate decision making and keep momentum moving for those you lead
- Why the “How” is more important than the “Why”
David Horsager, MA, CSP, CPAE is the CEO of Trust Edge Leadership Institute, national bestselling author of “The Trust Edge,” inventor of the Enterprise Trust Index™, and director of one of the nation’s foremost trust studies: The Trust Outlook™.

The 2018 TMA Annual Meeting will continue to build on the improvements and successes of the past years, presenting the strong education program and unparalleled networking only found at TMA’s annual event, along with the unique opportunity to interact with AHJ representatives. “We hope all TMA member companies will be represented in Palm Beach this year,” said TMA president Ivan Spector. “It’s always beneficial to see your fellow members in person and learn from the best of the best!”
This year, there is an adjustment to the traditional schedule. “Member feedback from recent years indicated that attendees want the Annual Meeting to be more streamlined,” continued Spector. “To that end, we are compressing two days of board and committee meetings into one. Committee members now do not need to arrive until early Sunday afternoon. However, we hope that if you can, you will come as early as Friday to take advantage of our spectacular location.”
Additional education sessions (October 15-17) at the Annual Meeting will focus on helping leaders address critical issues and challenges facing the monitoring industry, such as the millennial workforce, executive management, technology trends, and telecomm issues. The complete roster of speakers will be announced over the summer.
Rooms are available now at the 5-Star, 5-Diamond Eau Palm Beach Resort, located on the south end of Palm Beach Island, an 18-mile long Atlantic coast barrier island. For reservations call 855-388-0537 or use the TMA online portal. Registration will open in April. For more information, visit tma.us/2018am.
