Two major security industry accolades—the Sara E. Jackson Memorial award and the Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year award—were given out at the Electronic Security Association’s Leadership Summit, Jan. 28-31, in Austin, Texas.

ESA President Chris Mosley presented Don Childers of Security Central with the Sara E. Jackson Memorial Award during the first Main Stage session at Leadership Summit. Childers gave a heartfelt speech thanking the many people he has worked with during his years in the industry. Click here to see the video of the presentation. This award is sponsored by Resideo.

Mosley also presented Angela White, immediate past president of ESA, with the 2019 Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year Award. White thanked the people who nominated her and the past recipients of the award, as well as everyone who she has worked with along the way to give her this opportunity.

Each year, executives from the electronic security and life safety industry gather for the ESA Leadership Summit network with each other, learn keys to success from other industries, and develop their leadership skillset.

Jillian Bateman, ESA chief development officer, told Security Systems News, “We try to be a very, very efficient leadership event—one that is strategic about the interactions we foster.”
 
In addition to interactive sessions that delved into key industry topics and issues of the day, the summit also featured the ESA’s Rising Leaders Forum and an online networking portal to help facilitate beneficial meetings, which was fully launched for the first time this year.

“It’s able to help pair folks on interests,” Bateman said. “Whether an attendee wants to meet with another attendee on, maybe, some issues that they're having with technicians that they can brainstorm and talk through, or, if they want to meet a vendor on a new product that they have, they can do that as well.”
