What you missed at our last SVAA Member meeting
The Silicon Valley Alarm Association held our first meeting of the year with Mitch Reitman of Reitman Consulting Group as our guest speaker and he spoke to our group about the 2018 tax strategies and tips for business owners for the upcoming tax season. Questions were asked and answered regarding the provisions in the tax code for purchasing and write-off for alarm systems installed for commercial and business owners. We were honored as well to have Mike Matson, our CAA Northern California Vide-President and recipient of last year’s George A. Weinstock Award stop and provide information and feedback to our meeting content.
Questions were also brought up by our members about Best Buy and SimpliSafe doing business in California with no active ACO license and how we as an industry can help to combat this with the CAA/BSIS/SIAC associations. And a discussion on current topics about the City of Danville and City of Sunnyvale were discussed and we will forward to the CAA for review.
