First-Ever Security Industry Community Service Day
This Friday, June 7

#SecurityGivesBack this week with a new day focused on community service projects.

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the first-ever Security Industry Community Service Day, an initiative created by the SIA Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Advisory Board to rally the entire security industry to give back and make the world a better place. The 2024 Security Industry Community Service Day and supported by event sponsors ASSA ABLOY and HID – will take place on Friday, June 7, and the event will be held on the first Friday of June each year.

The inaugural Security Industry Community Service Day stems from a day of service that volunteers from Zenitel and Convergint pioneered and spreads this commitment of service to the entire security industry.

“The security industry’s record of community service is exceptional. There is more that can be collectively accomplished and the industry to make an impact in our communities. We appreciate the efforts of the ESG Advisory Board to drive this initiative forward, and we encourage our members and the broader industry to participate,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA looks forward to seeing the impact this industrywide day will have in 2024 and in the years to come.”

SIA’s Security Industry Community Service Day encourages each company to give back in a way that best matches its own company values and the interests of its team. While some companies may choose to participate as a team, other organizations may wish to empower their employees to identify ways to contribute individually. Ideas for service and volunteering include support of local meal providers and food kitchens, volunteering at schools, food collections and clothing drives, senior support programs, donation of professional services, direct support of local community members in need and more.
