The National Fire Sprinkler Association’s 2021 Area 2 Mid-Atlantic Seminar was a success! Over 100 members attended the conference at the scenic Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey.

The agenda included presentation from a variety of guest speakers, including @Sher Grogg, Common Voices; Russ Fleming, Northeast Fire Suppression Associates; Dale Florio, Princeton Public Affairs Group; NFSA President @Shane Ray; Gregory B. Cade of NFPA; Gary Lewis, City of Summit; and Dr. Charles Jennings, John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Attendees learned several things from these presentations, from technical issues to current trends in legislation on a state and federal level; however, they were also able to spend some quality time with their colleagues and friends. Several attendees were able to partake in all the resort had to offer, including golf, wine tasting, fly fishing, and even a cornhole tournament (congratulations to @Shawn Rockwell and @Kent Mezaros on their tournament victory)!

Welcoming the Mid-Atlantic Region Hall of Fame Inductees

On Saturday evening, the NFSA inducted five members into the Mid-Atlantic Region Hall of Fame. These members were selected based on the years of quality and dedicated service to bettering the fire sprinkler industry in the region. The National Fire Sprinkler Association was honored to induct the following members into their Area 2 Mid-Atlantic Region Hall of Fame:

These above members have left a profound impression on their colleagues and the industry as a whole that will far outlast their decades of service.
