One of former TMA President Ivan Spector’s last official duties was to honor professionals within the membership and the industry for their distinguished dedication to and support of TMA and its members’ interests.
On Monday, October 14th, Spector presented the newly-named Mel Mahler Award for Outstanding Service to the Monitoring Industry (formerly known as the President’s Award) to Steve E. Correll, executive director of Nlets. In presenting the award, Correll’s work to advance the ASAP-to-PSAP program was noted, as was his leadership in establishing the premier justice and public safety exchange mechanism in North America. This year marked the 11th anniversary of TMA’s partnership with Nlets. Correll will be retiring from Nlets this year after 18 years of service.
TMA’s highest award, the Stanley C. Lott Award, was presented to past TMA President and former Executive Director Jay Hauhn at the Annual Meeting’s closing dinner, October 16th. The award recognized Hauhn for his above and beyond commitment to TMA and to the monitoring industry over a period of more than 40 years. He, like Correll, played an instrumental role in the establishment and growth of TMA’s ASAP-to-PSAP program, which he continues to promote. Jauhn is currently working as a consultant to ADT.
Please join us congratulating the contributions of these great industry professionals.
