AACE 25th Annual Educational Conference
The 2014 Scholarship Recipients for the AACE Conference
The American Association of Code Enforcement (AACE) held their 25th annual educational conference October 27-31 in Rosemont, IL. Safeguard Properties was proud to once again be a lead sponsor, presenter and exhibitor at the event.
For the fourth consecutive year, Safeguard sponsored eight scholarships for code professionals to attend the conference. These scholarships help bring together first-time attendees for ongoing education on critical issues impacting day-to-day operations. To qualify for the scholarships, code enforcement officials were required to submit an essay to the Board of AACE. The essays focus on how code officers have been paramount to building partnerships, as well as reinforcing collaboration and creative innovative solutions; elements that are in tandem with the mission of Safeguard’s community initiatives department.
Thank you to this year’s winners (featured below) and the entire AACE membership for all their efforts throughout the communities and for their continued partnerships.
Safeguard also extends its best wishes to Sherri Johnston, a past president of AACE, who is retiring from the City of Mesquite, TX in January 2015. At the conference, she received the well-deserved lifetime achievement award. Sherri has been at the forefront of building partnerships between the mortgage field services industry and the code enforcement community. After her retirement, Sherri will continue working with AACE as an ambassador-at-large.
