Award presentations and reports by President James M. Shannon are highlights of the June 11 session in Las Vegas.

NFPA's 2012 Conference & Expo opens on Monday at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Convention Center, and for the first time, the association is offering a live broadcast of that day's opening general session beginning at 4 p.m. EST. The session will be broadcast at NFPA's Conference & Expo blog, which is already featuring news and announcements and will cover the conference throughout its run.

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.
