His involvement with the NSCA Education Foundation has created opportunities for development of the next generation of system integrators through events and sponsorships of Foundation activities, such as the annual industry concert headlined by the Drunk Unkles, an industry blues band in which Emspak plays guitar.

Dan Erickson, vice president of General Communications, received the 2008 NSCA Educator of the Year Award.

"This year's recipients embody the type of individuals needed to help advance and grow the commercial electronics system industry," said Chuck Wilson, executive director of NSCA, in a statement. "The service and dedication to NSCA is what has made this association what it is today. It is our hope that the future generations will learn and bring similar dedication and service to their careers and the industry."

NSCA also announced that the 2010 NSCA Business and Leadership Conference, sponsored by InfoComm International, will be held February 25-27, 2010, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., at the PGA National Resort and Spa.

The event for executives and managers in the commercial electronic systems industry, will feature industry experts discussing issues that affect AV pros and their ability to do business.
