CALSAGA is pleased to announce that the nominations period is now open for members who are interested in serving on the 2023-2024 CALSAGA Board of Directors. Elected Board Members will serve a 2-calendar year term on the Board of Directors, commencing January 1, 2023. The deadline for nomination submissions is the close of business, Friday, September 16, 2022.
The eleven Directors on the Board are responsible for the governing, operations, planning, and general business matters of CALSAGA. CALSAGA is non-profit corporation and is governed by bylaws, articles of incorporation, and state law. The Board meets every other month and Directors must make a commitment to attend these meetings. It is largely due to the commitment of Board members, and all other volunteers, that CALSAGA has been successful over the past 25+ years in representing the security industry’s interests in California.

The election and appointments are done in 3 Phases:

  • Phase I – Executive Committee
  • Phase II – Northern/Southern California Directors
  • Phase III – Directors-At-Large: Will be appointed by the new Board of Directors after they take office in January 2023.

Phase I and Phase II will be voted upon electronically by the membership (see timetable below)

Note: Candidates can submit nominations for both the Executive Committee and for the Northern/Southern California Director Positions. The votes will first be tallied for the Executive Committee; if an individual is elected to the Executive committee, their name will be withdrawn prior to the tally for the Northern/Southern California Positions.
