Free Webinar on Campus Reporting Procedures Being Offered on Sept 19

Security Technology Leader TrackTik Announces Partnership with Clery Center to Promote On-Campus Safety.

Montreal-based TrackTik, the leading workforce management solution for physical security, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Clery Center’s National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2019. 


NCSAM originated in 2008 following unanimous congressional support for increased public awareness on issues surrounding campus safety, culminating in September becoming the designated National Campus Safety Awareness Month. 


“This year’s theme of ‘Bridging the Gap’ focuses on connecting theory to practice in areas campuses often find confusing or challenging,” said Laura Egan, Clery Center Senior Director of Programs. “Through providing subject matter experts across the field in our webinars and hands-on resources like our flowcharts and tools, Clery Center highlights the questions that need answers and provides applicable ways to put the answers into practice.”


“Montreal is a proud student city, and as a Montreal-based software company, TrackTik is very excited about this partnership,” said Brian Strasser, Senior Director of Partnerships at TrackTik. “We’ve been in talks with Clery Center for a while now, and are happy to support their initiatives on the crucial issue of campus safety.”


“With risk being invisible, yet ever-threatening, we know that creating awareness and ensuring compliance with the Clery Act is vital,” Strasser said. “As such, we recognize the important work that Clery Center does and are delighted to support their initiatives.” 


In recognition of National Campus Safety Awareness Month, the two organizations have announced a joint webinar being held free of charge as part of the range of professional development opportunities offered during the month of September.


Webinar participants will benefit from the combination of TrackTik’s proficiency in the field of security and Clery Center’s subject matter expertise on the Act.  Both organizations will cover strategies to refine the reporting procedures necessary to ensure Clery compliance.


Scheduled to take place September 19 at 2 p.m. EST, the webinar will be led by Laura Egan of the Clery Center, and Mark Folmer, Vice President, Security Industry of TrackTik and leading industry expert.
