Every month we sit down with one of our amazing ABA members to get to know them a little better! For January, we sat down with Craig Stevenson from Northeast Security Agency. We ask each member the same questions, providing an opportunity for our members to highlight the important work that they do in our communities. If you’re an ABA Member and would like to be considered for future Monthly Member Highlights, please reach out to us via email at info@altonbusinessassociation.com
