The Loss Prevention Foundation Announces

Bob MacLea LPQ and LPC

Swing for Certification

Course Scholarship Recipients





(Matthew, NC – September 16, 2019)On June 10, 2019 in Fullerton, CA, The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) hosted the second annual ‘Swing for Certification’ Golf Tournament, preceding the NRF PROTECT conference. This event was held to raise money to fund LPQ and LPC course scholarships for LP professionals who want to advance their careers by obtaining their LPQ or LPC certification and to benefit the Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund. In 2018, the first ‘Swing for Certification’ tournament raised enough money to award 128 scholarships in the name of LPF Board Member Emeritus, Bob MacLea. The goal for the 2019 tournament was to meet or exceed that amount.

The Loss Prevention Foundation is thrilled to announce that, thanks to the amazing generosity of the LPF partners, ‘Swing for Certification’ sponsors, and all the tournament attendees, over $90,000 was raised at the event. This will allow the LPF to award 139 Bob MacLea LPQ and LPC Scholarships! These scholarships will be awarded to loss prevention professionals from 73 different organizations in 19 different countries and the US Armed Forces, who have the desire to further their education.
“Swing for Certification, after only two years, has far exceeded our expectations and shows the tremendous support we have to continue to develop and provide challenging educational content to our industry,” said Terry Sullivan, LPC, President of the LPF. “It is such a great day to get together with our colleagues to have some fun on the course and, as an added benefit, we get to give back to our industry. The LPF cannot express its gratitude enough for all our sponsors, partners, and everyone that came out, for supporting our mission of education! We are looking forward to ‘Swing for Certification’ 2020! Many of our great solution provider partners have already committed to sponsoring this event and a special call-out to Vector Security Networks who has committed to being the Platinum Level Sponsor for the third consecutive year.

The scholarship applications, which had to include a one to two paragraph essay on how the recipient plans to use the knowledge they obtain from the course to further their career and personal development, have been pouring in for months. After reviewing each application and reading every essay, the Bob MacLea Scholarship recipients have been chosen.Congratulations to all the winners!

Mark Your Calendars!

The 2020 ‘Swing for Certification’ Golf Tournament will be held June 22nd at the Olde Stonewall Golf Club in Ellwood City, PA preceding the NRF PROTECT Conference in Pittsburgh.
