The Security Industry Association (SIA) is saying goodbye to its Alexandria office on Slaters Lane after 12 years. Effective June 25, SIA is relocating to its new headquarters at 8405 Colesville Rd., Suite 500, Silver Spring, Maryland 20910-6343.

According to SIA’s Jay Hauhn SIA’s growing membership and the association own growth and evolution required expanding to a new headquarters which could better support the needs of the organization, including infrastructure upgrades and further room for growth.

Making the move from Alexandria to Silver Spring was decided based on several factors including cost, access and convenience.

“One of the main drawbacks to the Alexandria headquarters is a lack of access to public transportation,” said Hauhn. “The new office is located within a block of the Silver Spring Metro Station (on the Red Line), making it easily accessible to members, visitors and staff.”

The new offices also offer more meeting space for visiting members and better access to affordable accommodations, dining and other area attraction.

SIA will be issuing out contact information updates in the coming weeks as well as information about an open house on July 12.

SIA’s new address is 8405 Colesville Road, Suite 500, Silver Spring, MD, 20910-6343. The main office number is 301-804-4700.
