Message from the President
Greetings everyone! I hope that 2019 finds all of you well and that this New Year is off to a joyous, safe and prosperous start. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve as your President of OASIS over the next year. I’m a former member of the Ohio Private Investigation and Security Services Commission and I’ve owned my own business as a Licensed Class “A” provider company here in Ohio since 2005. I’d like to thank Mike Staley, the immediate past President of OASIS for his leadership these past two years as well as the hard work and support of the other OASIS board members. OASIS is poised for new beginnings and new growth in its membership with the implementation of a registrant association member program for all of Ohio’s registrants of the Private Investigation and Security Services profession. Under Mike’s leadership we’ve also launched a vendor sponsorship program for industry related sponsors to all of our members. Hopefully, within the coming weeks you’ll see a fresh new look to our association webpage as well other items of interest to our members.
It is my every intent in the coming year to continue with growing our membership and building relationships with other professional associations throughout the state and nationwide. Our association needs to better monitor legislative activities at the Ohio Statehouse because there are many Bills introduced on a daily basis that if passed could end up being quite detrimental to our profession here in Ohio. You can assist in those efforts by supporting OASIS with your membership. The financial support of your membership dues will go to fund the lobbyist and public relations firms we need to contract with to assist us in getting our message heard and getting key legislation passed that is supportive to our profession.
Thank you once again for your support. As always, I’m ready to listen to your concerns.
Major Theodore Owens USA, Ret.
