The Monitoring Association (TMA) announced that Jennifer Scanlon, president and CEO of UL Inc., will provide the opening keynote address for the organization’s annual meeting, which will be held Oct. 9-13 at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

Scanlon’s keynote, Collaboration—Our Force Multiplier for Forging a Profitable Future, is scheduled for Oct. 11 at 10:15 AM HST, and will address megatrends shaping the monitoring and alarm industry.

“UL has long been a trusted partner of TMA,” said TMA president Don Young in a statement. “Working in close collaboration with one another for many decades, our organizations have worked to develop key guidelines and standards for the monitoring industry. Likewise, we have jointly addressed critical issues facing providers of monitoring and life safety equipment and services. Most recently, we worked hand-in-hand to address the needs and challenges of monitoring centres at the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic. I am very pleased and honoured to have Ms. Scanlon as our 2021 keynote speaker.”

Scanlon is an advocate for STEM education and the benefits of diversity and inclusion. She is a member of the board of Norfolk Southern Corporation, chair of the Commercial Club of Chicago and vice chair of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Prior to UL, Scanlon was president and CEO of USG Corp.
