On August 31, 2021, the American Writers Museum (AWM) is hosting its OnWord 2021 annual benefit, which raises funds to support the educational and cultural programming of AWM. During this year's benefit, AWM Founder, Malcolm O'Hagan, will be presented with the museum's Cultural and Civic Leader Award.
Mr. O'Hagan served as NEMA President from 1991-2005. He led the association through its transition from a national Standards developing organization to a truly international body with influence in the world's fastest developing economies and the harmonization of Standards, testing, and certification of electrical products in markets worldwide. Under O'Hagan, NEMA also became a well-known voice on public policy in Washington, DC. and in the nation's state capitals as well. During this time, the NEMA statistical reporting shop grew into a well-respected, full-service economics and market research arm.
O'Hagan incorporated AWM in 2009 and officially opened the museum in Chicago in 2017. AWM celebrates the enduring influence of American writers on our history, identity, culture, and daily lives. It is the only museum devoted solely to American writers and their works. For more information, visit their website at www.americanwritersmuseum.org.
NEMA is proud to support AWM and congratulates Mr. O'Hagan on his Cultural and Civic Leader Award.
