The Security Industry Association (SIA) appointed John Stroia, vice president of corporate development for Diebold Inc., to the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) board of directors. Stroia currently serves as the secretary on SIA’s board of directors. The position was previously held by Charlie Darsh, director of corporate relations for System Sensor, a division of Honeywell. “Charlie Darsch has been a dedicated supporter of SIAC since its inception, and we can’t thank him enough for his service, contributions and commitment,” said Jay Hauhn, chairman of SIA’s board of directors. “His sage advice will be sorely missed. “We’re pleased that John Stroia has accepted our invitation to join the board, and are confident he will help further SIAC’s mission on behalf of SIA,” Hauhn added. SIAC is comprised of four major North American security associations — the Canadian Security Association (CANASA), the Security Industry Association (SIA), the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), and the Electronic Security Association (ESA) — representing one voice for the alarm industry on alarm management issues.
