Bernard H. Falk, a former president and CEO of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), passed away earlier this week.
“Bernie was an innovator and a pioneer who laid much of the groundwork for what NEMA is able to accomplish today,” said NEMA President and CEO Evan R. Gaddis. “Our highest award is named in his honor. Senator John Danforth, Astronaut Neil Armstrong, and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Jon Wellinghoff are all past winners of the Falk Award.”
A service and burial will take place Friday, September 20, 2013, in New York City.
