The NSCA Education Foundation elected Tony Price as the new president at this year's annual board meeting. This is the first time since the foundation's inception that a manufacturer has served in the role of president. Price has served on the foundation board for two years and has been actively involved in the pursuit of higher education for members of the industry. Price has been in the industry more than twenty years and is currently the director of business development at Telex Communications in Burnsville, Minn.
"I consider it a true honor to have been elected president of the NSCA Education Foundation," says Price. "I sincerely believe that education is of paramount importance to the vitality of our industry, and I am proud to be a part of a charitable organization that stands to take a lead role in driving so many crucial initiatives."
In addition to Price, the newly elected Foundation officers include Vice President Tom Frericks, president/CEO of Copp Systems Integrators in Dayton, Ohio, and Secretary/Treasurer Loyd Ivey, CEO and founder of Mitek Corporation in Phoenix, Ariz.
Frericks has been involved in the low-voltage contracting and service industry for the past 26 years and served as volunteer to the NSCA for the past 15, including the role of president of the NSCA board.
A member of our industry for more than 30 years, Ivey is the founder and CEO of Mitek Corporation, a leading privately held U.S. manufacturer of high-performance car, home, professional, and commercial audio products.
"The foundation has played a vital role in the advancing the commercial electronics industry through education initiatives," says Chuck Wilson, executive director, NSCA. "We are excited for this new leadership group and look forward to the future direction they will provide."
