As part of its fall conference being held today in New York (and coinciding with Tuesday's start of the ISC East security tradeshow), the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA) announced its 2007 Leadership Awards Winners.
Training Coordinator of the Year was presented to Woody Woodham, who operates in Alabama and Mississippi. Woodham has been an NTS trainer for 14 years. Instructor of the year award was presented to LJ Lynes of Tennessee. Lynes has been an instructor since 1999 and is reported to be among the best in the industry.
The good staff of the California Alarm Association, including Jon Sargent, the association's president, and Jerry Lenander, the CAA executive director, were recognized for the top-notch work they do in putting together "The Mirror". "The Mirror", the official publication of the CAA, earned the 2007 NBFAA Newsletter of the Year Award. California earned more high rankings with Sargent being tapped as the Chapter President of the Year. Sargent, who works with ADT not only has a history of 30 years as an active volunteer and member, but has worked closely with CAA members and the Security Industry Alarm Coalition on effective alarm reduction programs as well as legislative issues in the state.
The NBFAA Executive Director of the Year Award was presented to Beverly Lynch of the New Jersey Burglar and Fire Alarm Association.
And, of course, the Tennessee Burglar and Fire Alarm Association earned high praise from other members as that state charter organization was recognized as Chapter of the Year.
