CAA Member Spotlight: Grant Jordan
How long have you been at current company? 7 Years –Played helper roll throughout high school. What association programs or events did you participate in? Winter convention every year, spring convention, AIREF golf tournament and East Bay Alarm Association. What benefit do you receive from associations that you DID NOT expect? Going in I had the mentality that other companies in this space are competition, and realizing that we can help each other and learn from each other to both succeed. A lot of the politics and licensing and the behind the scenes stuff that the CAA does with the PAC, is something that I would never have known about but very vital to our industry. What do you think is the most important part of an association? Having a unified front as a smaller company is really beneficial and important. We’re able to fight things together like the PAC and SIAC. If we all had to do this on our own it would be very difficult and now we’re able to take things on as a stronger team. It gives us a global perspective on what is happening within the industry.
