As you know, this is a conference by the industry and for the industry. One of the International Protective Security Board’s (IPSB) goals is the education and professionalization of the industry. We are moving into the planning season for this years Close Protection Conference and are reaching out to see what ideas or topics you might have. Do you know someone who has had an experience relevant to the audience? Is there a panel topic you have been interested in?

This is the time to put those ideas forward!
