Nominations are now open for the 2021 SIA Honors Night Awards. Each year at SIA Honors Night, the Security Industry Association (SIA) presents the most respected awards in the security industry to members, volunteers, committee chairs, elected officials and practitioners. SIA Honors Night is held in partnership with ISC East.

SIA is accepting nominations for the following awards:

George R. Lippert Memorial Award

The Lippert Award, founded in 1989, is named in honor of George R. Lippert, who dedicated more than 20 years of his life to the security industry and SIA. When evaluating candidates nominated for the award, the SIA Lippert Award Committee considers their long-term service to SIA and the security industry, the impact of their efforts on behalf of SIA and the industry and their integrity, leadership and diplomacy as demonstrated in industry dealings.

Jay Hauhn Excellence In Partnerships Award

SIA’s Hauhn Award is named in honor of Jay Hauhn. As a previous SIA chairman of the board, Hauhn demonstrated a steadfast commitment to fostering collaboration among industry trade associations, and this award recognizes a leader who embodies that spirit of collaboration in the industry.

SIA Progress Award

The SIA Progress Award, sponsored by SIA’s Women in Security Forum, celebrates an individual who is advancing opportunities and paving the way to success for women in the security industry. Each recipient is determined based on their contributions to advancing women in the security industry, promoting women’s professional growth through mentorship and/or sponsorship, recognitions and/or awards for related activities and demonstration of the highest levels of professionalism and integrity in the security industry.

Nominations for the 2021 SIA Honors Night awards will be accepted through Friday, Sept. 10. Learn more and submit a nomination on the SIA website.
