2014 SNIA Member Recognition Honorees (as announced January 21, 2015)

We could not do the work of the SNIA without our passionate and dedicated volunteers. We are pleased to recognize the following honorees in two unique categories. Honorees are selected by SNIA members via an anonymous survey. The first set of awards are individuals who made significant contributions to SNIA. The second set of awards are group awards which recognize an affiliate, forum, initiative or technical work group.
