Ms Saunders said she was “honoured” to be re-elected. “ASIAL is the largest security industry association representing the security industry, and its members account for about 85 per cent of the industry,” she said.

“I feel privileged to work alongside my colleagues to support members and look at how we can continue to elevate security services to a level that keeps our industry robust and offers the best protection to the community and our clients.”

However, she was keen to point out that ASIAL and her fellow directors’  work to support members, promote standards and safeguard public interests provided her with valuable insights that she could share with her company and others.

“Security is an industry that is constantly changing and facing different pressures,” she said. “It’s important that we continue to be proactive and find ways to support members, which include businesses of all sizes and that work across a wide range security operations.”

ASIAL provides advice, assistance and representation to members in the security sector, including owners and operators of security businesses providing all forms of manpower, cash in transit, electronic and associated security services.
