Member honoured in Canada.

Steven Potter, an IED member currently residing in Canada, was selected to receive the NPA's 2009 Award for Professionalism for Best Networking Professional--Career Achievement Award. The N PA (Network Professional Association) recognises individuals who serve as role models in the network computing community and are considered as industry luminaries by their peers.

Steven graduated with a degree in Engineering from Havering Technical College and started his career as a Junior Programmer at Marconi Elliott Avionic Systems Limited. He emigrated to Canada in 1980 and currently works as a Senior Software Design Engineer for Spottek Systems in Nova Scotia.

His career was inspired by his teacher, Mr William R Broderick, who was a pioneer in the use of computers in education. In the late 1960s, Mr Broderick arranged for the Royal Liberty School to be one of the first schools in the world to have a computer on the premises.

The award was presented at the Interop conference in Las Vegas in May. Accepting his award, Stephen commented: "l am very honoured. Recognition from one's peers gives one a sense of accomplishment and pride"
