That's one I haven't been tele-marketed by before.  Who the heck are they

Just a side note, I just read that Arizona just initiated alarm installation
company licensing, so maybe it has something to do with that.
I was surprised.
Somehow,I woulda thought that they already had licensing. Hard to believe that
the politicians hadn't tapped the cash cow long before now.

I hold two contractor's licenses, but the only "alarm" licensing is by
municipality.  More of a trade specific city business license.  I had not heard
anything about Az starting separate alarm licensing.  I guess I better look into
it.

Interesting.  I'll have to see if I can get a copy of the text of the bill.  The
Tucson Alarm guy does seem to share my general opinion about licensing and
associations being all about helping the big players screw the smaller players.  

Re: Arizona Alarm Association?
I looked at their web site and I think the key to this association is
laws which are being enacted and the association speaking as one voice
for the alarm industry in that state.

That is what a lot of these industry associations are all about. They
can speak as a group to lawmakers about proposed laws or past laws which
have been enacted which might need changing.

Also if there is going to be a silly law proposed, they can alert the
members. Then they can attend meetings and "give input" about the
proposed law.

In some states they might get laws passed that only licensed persons can
do a certain type of work. Like in N.Y. it is almost impossible for
someone to do their own electrical work. Pretty much need to hire an
electrician.

And in some states they have laws where you can only buy a casket from
an undertaker.

Or farmers might have a group which gets laws passed to pay them to not
grow a certain crop, give them tax breaks, etc.

It is the American way!

The Arizona Alarm Association actually is represented by more Police Depart
ments, than actual alarm contractors. The president of this association is  
a manager for COPs monitoring. They have fought for years to being City Lic
ensing to cities across Arizona. They also have fought for dual licensing a
t the State Level. They are a branch of the National Alarm Association and  
their goal is to institute more licensing requirements that create hardship
s for small companies and prevent new business from entering the market pla
ce. We have have back, fortunately, since 1997. The legislation that the Az
AA passed last year, was altered by our efforts and changed HB 2748 from al
lowing any City to license alarm companies, to not allowing cities to licen
se alarm companies.  

We then created an association solely for Arizona alarm contractors. The Ar
izona Alarm Dealers Association, arizonaalarmdealers.org, fights for small  
government and broadening the industry via bringing in new technology and e
ducation. Membership is $30.60 per year, based on 4 times Arizona hourly mi
nimum wage. Our membership has is expanding rapidly. (888) 303-3207 or visi
t our web site.

There is a new kid in town that is standing up to these bullies. The new as
sociation is the Arizona Alarm Dealers Association, non profit.  

The Arizona Alarm Association actually is represented by more Police Depart

The Arizona Alarm Association actually has been fighting to allow Municipal
ities to demand alarm company information WITHOUT A COURT ORDER. They were  
successful at having the City of Tucson pass an ordinance were alarm compan
ies had to send a list of clients updated every month, hold all records, bo
th paper and voice records, for a year and supply any member of the Police  
department information as requested within 72 hours of request. Now is that
 insane? After we amended their bill last year, HB 2748, they promised the  
Cities they would come back this year and change it back. They brought fort
h HB 2185 which we had held in the Senate.

Last year, we created an association solely for Arizona alarm contractors.

He probably did a search and found it. Regardless, it would still seem to be
pertinent to anyone in Arizona. Bob L is from Arizona.

The battle has just started in Arizona. The Arizona Alarm Association attempted
to ram more regulations down our throats this year. We expect more next year.
Corporate America is having a hard time retaining their monitored accounts since
small business is taking so many clients from them. Government has been chosen
to aid corporate America to stay in business.
