SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award
Recognizing Individuals for Leadership of a SIA Committee
About the SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award
The SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award is presented to the individual who, in his or her leadership of an SIA committee, has demonstrated excellence in leading SIA committees and advancing member objectives. The Committee Chair of the Year Award is presented at The Advance, SIA's annual membership meeting held during ISC West.
SIA has named Alice DiSanto the 2022 recipient of the SIA Committee Chair of the Year Award. DiSanto was introduced to the Security Industry Association in 2014 and immediately became actively involved. DiSanto is a founding member of the SIA Women in Security Forum Steering Committee and chair of the forum’s Charitable Giving Subcommittee.
Under DiSanto’s charitable giving leadership, the SIA Women in Security Forum has presented annual efforts like the CAN DO Challenge, which inspires individuals to help overcome America’s unprecedented hunger issue by donating “cans” or “doing” acts like delivering or serving meals during the holiday season, and the Essentials 4 Job Security Giveback, an initiative at ISC West in support of Dress for Success Southern Nevada that offers acts of kindness and donations to help women trying to get back into the workforce feel more confident and self-assured as they take steps to improve their lives.
