The Monitoring Association’s (TMA) immediate past president Don Young presented the Mel Mahler Award to TMA Standards Committee Chair Glenn Schroder, NetOne, on Tues., Oct. 14 during its virtual general business meeting. Formerly known as the President’s Award, the Mel Mahler Award is presented at the discretion of the TMA president in recognition of outstanding contributions within their tenure.

“An exceptional leader, the 2021 award winner has collaborated jointly with monitoring professionals within the TMA community, as well as public safety and communications professionals, to introduce new technologies, standards, and processes aimed at reducing risk and heightening safety and security,” Young said. “It is difficult to capture the magnitude of this member’s commitment in words. Suffice to say, I am enormously grateful to have had this professional on my leadership team over the last two years. This recipient’s contributions will most certainly significantly impact the future of TMA, our industry, and the families and businesses we protect for decades to come.” 

“I am stunned, honored, and especially humbled to be recognized,” Schroeder said when presented with the award. “It’s been an absolute privilege to work alongside the many talented people focused on important industry projects that I believe in and have a passion for.”
