It will feature a welcome by Chair Thomas W. Jaeger, P.E.; the President's Report by James M. Shannon; the Nominating Committee Report by Peter McMahon; and awards. These include the Industrial Fire Protection Section's Best Fire Prevention Week Program Award, the 2012 Life Safety Educator of the Year Award, the Fire Protection Research Foundation Medal, and the Standards Medal.
