2018 Chair's Commendation recipients

At recent Alarm seminars in Birmingham and London I was delighted to present Chair's Commendations to Alarm Members, Karen Seabright and Steve Mappley. This award recognises the hard work undertaken in promoting risk management throughout public services and in supporting Alarm Members.

Steve, Insurance and Risk Manager at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is a long-standing Alarm Member who has given his time and expertise to support Alarm, particularly the South East Group. Steve has served as Chair and Secretary for the South East Committee. During his time he has demonstrated leadership and perseverance, being one of the driving forces in organising well attended and successful events.


Karen, Insurance Commissioning Manager for Worcestershire County Council has been an active Member of Alarm for many years, acting as Secretary for the Midlands Group since the mid 90s. Working diligently behind the scenes, organising speakers and venues for our Midlands events, it is her hard work that ensures these events are informative and educational for our Members.

Both are experienced and skilled risk and insurance professionals and exemplars of professionalism in our industry.

I would like to extend my thanks on behalf of Alarm to Karen and Steve for their commitment and dedication to support Alarm and our Members. Both are deserving winners of this year's Chair's Commendation.

Jane O'Leary, Alarm Chair
