Ron Walters wins William Moody Award
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Ron Walters, director of the Security Industry Alarm Association, was honored at ESX 2014 with the William Moody Award, according to a recent blog post from SIAC.
According to the blog, the award was “probably long overdue.”
“Because Ron works so much behind the scenes, and doesn’t seek attention, his work often goes unnoticed,” the post noted. “But not to us, and not to many of the state associations he helps throughout the U.S., along with the Electronic Security Association (ESA), Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), Security Industry Association (SIA) and Canadian Security Association (CANASA). They know Ron, and his contributions over the years, and recognize how much he helps improve alarm management practices across North America in big and small ways.”
The post went on to say one of the least noticed parts of Walters’ job is his “diligent, consistent and high value work helping associations develop, implement and enforce strong standards,” and that he also writes model alarm ordinances for jurisdictions across the country, “maintaining consistency from city to city.”
