SILVER SPRING, Md.—The Security Industry Association (SIA) has selected Janet Fenner as the 2020 recipient of the Sandy Jones Volunteer of the Year Award, which recognizes SIA volunteers who have made tireless efforts to expand SIA’s programs and services. SIA will present Fenner with the award at The Advance, SIA’s annual membership meeting, during ISC West.

“I sincerely thank SIA for this acknowledgement and honor for which I am most grateful,” Fenner said in the announcement. “This award represents the scores of friends, colleagues and family who help make the activities and events I’ve been involved with both possible and meaningful—and I extend my sincerest thanks to them as well.”

Fenner is chief marketing officer at Intelligent Security Systems (ISS), a developer of security surveillance and control systems for networked digital video and audio recording, video image pattern processing and digital data transmission. Prior to her time at ISS, she held marketing and leadership roles at Dahua Technology, Hanwha Techwin America and TemTec. 

As a member of the SIA Board of Directors and serving as Chair of SIA’s Membership and Marketing Committee, she guides SIA in creating member value, especially for the purposes of increasing member retention, new member development and overall member engagement. She also serves as a valued sounding board for validating member benefits developed by SIA’s committees and staff. Additionally, Fenner is a member of the SIA Women in Security Forum steering committee, which engages all security professionals to promote, recruit and cultivate the leadership of women for a more inclusive, diversified industry. 

“Janet Fenner truly embodies a spirit of volunteerism at SIA through her active involvement in SIA committees, events and membership initiatives, and by continually encouraging other members to grow their engagement with the association,” SIA Chairman of the Board, Scott Schafer, said. “SIA commends Janet for her exceptional contributions to SIA and the security industry, and for partnering with SIA to provide top-quality programs, initiatives and services, and we look forward to recognizing her for these accomplishments at The Advance.” 

The Advance will take place on Tuesday, March 17, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas.
