During the official ceremony at this month’s ALA Conference, the recipients will talk about their backgrounds in the industry, but we took a fun approach to revealing what you don’t know about this year’s honorees.

The Pillar of the Industry awards recognize three ALA members – one for each category served by the ALA (manufacturers’ representatives, retail showrooms, and manufacturers) for their unique and meaningful service to advance the lighting industry plus the ALA’s program and mission during the previous 18 months. The award recipients are nominated by ALA members and the ALA staff and are selected by the ALA Awards Committee.
