Nominate a leader for these prestigious awards, recognizing outstanding SIA volunteer leadership and advancement of women in the security industry and presented at SIA Honors Night.

The Security Industry Association (SIA) presents the most respected awards in the security industry on an annual basis to members, volunteers, committee chairs, elected officials and practitioners. SIA has opened the 2023 call for nominations for the George R. Lippert Memorial Award and the SIA Progress Award – key awards celebrating outstanding volunteer contributions to SIA and leadership within the security industry.

SIA’s 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. This honor is presented each year to a distinguished individual for 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.

The SIA Progress Award, presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum, celebrates individuals who are advancing opportunities and paving the way to success for women in the security industry. Each year’s recipient is determined based on their contributions to fostering women in the industry, promotion of women’s professional growth through mentorship and/or sponsorship, recognition and awards for related activities and outstanding professionalism and integrity in the security industry.

The recipients of this year’s Lippert and Progress Awards will be recognized at the 2023 SIA Honors Night event, taking place Nov. 15 in New York City in conjunction with ISC East. Take the opportunity to recognize an outstanding individual for their contributions to and impact on the industry and beyond! 

Nominations will be accepted through Friday, Sept. 29. Submit your nomination for the Lippert Award here and the SIA Progress Award here.
