PSA Security Network (PSA), Westminster, Colo., the world’s largest security cooperative, hosted its annual convention at the JW Marriott in Cancun. This opportunity directly connected PSA members with other owners and executives of PSA member companies, as well as with key contacts from vendor partners.

PSA honored member companies during the President’s Award dinner. Genesis Integration took three awards this year including the Top Overall Increase award. The firm also received Top Purchaser — Western region, and Top Increase — Western region. Red Hawk was honored with the Top Overall Purchaser award. Regional Top Purchaser awards were presented to Pass Security — Central region, Videotec — Midwest region, Advanced Control Concepts — Southern region, and Red Hawk — Northeast region.

Top Increase awards by region went to Associated Engineered Systems — Central region, Camtronics — Midwest region, Condortech Services — Southern region, and Reliable Communication Systems — Northeast region. Excellence Awards were also given to members serving on the National Accounts and Leadership committees. The Paul Marcus award recognizing outstanding service to PSA was awarded to Tracey Hups, director of marketing and customer relations for PSA.

“As we evaluated candidates, it became obvious to the board that Tracey, PSA’s longest-tenured employee, met all the criteria of a Paul Marcus award winner,” said Mike Kobelin, vice-chairman of the board. “Tracey has worn multiple hats at PSA, including secretary of the board, and director of marketing and customer relations, leading the marketing and customer service departments through reorganizations and transformations. PSA and its membership has benefited directly from the changes and new implementations she has led.”

The PSA 2009 Convention will be held Oct. 23-27, 2009 at the Frenchman’s Reef (Marriott) in St. Thomas, United States, Virgin Islands.
