NOMMAEDUCATIONFOUNDATION In Partnership with the National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association NEF Partners Present 2016 Cliff Brown Award on March 28 at Education Reception LYNN PARQUETTE Foundation was established, the Board of Trustees were approached by the President of Hallmark Iron Works, Charles Mercer, expressing his willingness to support the foundation through a generous annual donation and the establishment of the Cliff Brown Award to recognize contributions to the education of the industry. This award honors Cliff Brown who was the founder of Hallmark Iron Works. Mr. Brown always believed in the importance of giving back to the industry that had been good to him and his company. In this vain, Mr. Mercer wanted to continue recognizing outstanding efforts in the area of education for the ornamental and miscellaneous metals industry. Thus, the Cliff Brown Award was established and has been recognizing outstanding contributions to educating the industry since 2002. This year, the Cliff Brown Award goes to a group with special recognition to two of its members. Whether it is financial support, giving of their time to other members, teaching classes at METALfab, hosting NEF Continuing Education events, responding to questions on the ListServ, or one-on-one conversations, they provide a wealth of knowledge to WHEN THE NOMMA EDUCATION NOMMA members and the industry. This group is always willing to go the extra mile. The Cliff Brown Award for 2016 was presented to the Big D Family with special recognition to Curt Witter and Tony Martinez. Fund Raising at METALfab2016 - Our auctioneers, Carl Grainger and Roger Carlsen, came through for us again this year. With their great auctioneering we were able to raise more than $25,000 for education during the auction and the Partners in Education reception. A special "thank you" goes to Marti Grainger and Monique LeBlanc for managing the NEF booth and the auction proceedings. The NEF Board of Trustees thanks the great group of volunteers who took time to help before, during, and after the auction. Without your help we could not have had such a successful evening. METALfab Education - NEF, with the assistance of the Education Committee of Curt Witter and Doug Bracken, were able to present a great line up of education classes again this year during METALfab. Most of our presenters are fabricator and supplier members of NOMMA, and without their help we would not be able to bring such a wellrounded education program to our members and METALfab attendees.
