The HIA-LI is proud to announce we will be honoring Ron Loveland, President, Summit Safety & Efficiency Solutions at our HIA-LI Season of Giving Gala Luncheon on December 12th, 2019, 11 a.m., as an extraordinary leader who impacts the Long Island community. It was Margaret Mead who once said, “Never underestimate the power of a few committed passionate people. It is the thing that can change the world.” Our honorees are a fine example of that. Whether they have partnered with the community to carry out initiatives critical to the survival and growth of LI Business or helped develop HIA-LI committee projects that impact a certain industry – they are all exceptional leaders.

During the past quarter-century, the HIA -LI has grown from a handful to 1,000 member companies representing tens of thousands of Long Island business professionals. Our community outreach has fed the hungry, supplied blood for emergencies, provided scholarships for Long Island college students and strengthened businesses throughout the region.
