PHOENIX, ARIZONA – At the National Association for Information Destruction’s (NAID) annual conference in Grapevine, Texas, members of the association’s Complaint Resolution Council (CRC) were presented with the 2014 Member of the Year Award.

The NAID Executive Committee awarded the following members for the hard work and dedication in protecting NAID and NAID members.

  • Cory Tomczyk (chairman), IROW in Monisee, Wisconsin
  • Brock Miller, CSDS, AccuShred NW in Gresham, Oregon
  • David Rhoads, SureShred in Hayward, California
  • Gina Lentine, CSDS, Assure Shred in Ringoes, New Jersey
  • Joseph Harford, CSDS, Reclamere, Inc. in Tyrone, Pennsylvania
  • Robert Gaspard, Security Mobile Shredding, Inc. in Alexandria, Louisiana

CRC members were recognized during the annual business luncheon at the conference.

The CRC is responsible for evaluating and making recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding alleged violation of the association’s code of ethics. Complaints are accepted from members, non-members and consumers. These ethical complaints range from trademark infringement to improperly disposing of information. Members of this committee meet monthly to hear the cases, discuss the complaints, and recommend appropriate action to the NAID Board of Directors.

“Due to NAID’s proactive position on ethic enforcement, these industry professionals often meet for hours at a time several times a month when required,” said NAID President Steve Richards, CSDS, of Richards & Richards in Nashville, Tennessee. “And, due to the sensitive nature of what they do, they are often talking to members who aren’t very happy at the time. This is a well-deserved and hard earned award.”
