ERA Honors Holly Myers, CPMR, with the 2023 Tess Hill Award

The Electronics Representatives Association (ERA) is pleased to honor Holly Myers, CPMR, director of supplier marketing and product management, Sager Electronics, with the seventh annual Tess Hill Award, given at the 2024 ERA Conference in Austin, Texas.

The Tess Hill Award was created in 2017 to honor Tess Hill, a long-time ERA staff member. It recognizes individuals for their longevity of service to ERA, for inspiring volunteerism in its highest form and for their dedication to ERA’s educational mission.

“It was an honor to receive the Tess Hill Award at the 2024 ERA Conference. To win an award in Tess’ name is humbling as her dedication to ERA over the years is unmatched,” said Myers. “The educational mission of ERA resonates with me and I have enjoyed being part of ERA conference planning and committee work for many years. What I have received back from ERA, personally and professionally, far outweighs what I have given in terms of time and effort. It has been a joy to serve this amazing organization as a volunteer, and I look forward to continued work with ERA membership in the future.”
