The Monitoring Association (TMA) announced the appointment of Tommy Whisnant to the co-chairmanship of its Government Relations Committee.

Whisnant will join seated Committee Co-Chair James Marcella, Axis Communications, in leading TMA’s state and local advocacy efforts and often partnering with the Alarm Industry Communications Committee (AICC) on legislative initiatives. Whisnant is currently the compliance manager for North Carolina-based CPI Security.

“I am honored to have been selected to represent TMA and the Government Relations Committee as co-chair,” said Whisnant. “I am looking forward to working with the great people on this committee and this amazing Association. Our industry is constantly changing, and we are seeing an extreme amount of traffic with proposed law changes. The committee is committed to bringing visibility, representing the members of TMA and making decisions based on the best interest of our membership.”

Morgan Hertel, TMA president, said, “Tommy is a consummate professional whose combined knowledge and experience will be a valued asset to TMA and its members in this new volunteer leadership role. In a time when our industry is facing some significant legislative and regulatory issues, I am confident in the leadership and insights that James and Tommy bring to TMA’s Government Relations Committee.”
