The SCHRADERGROUP (SG) team is proud to announce that the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) has awarded the 2022 A4LE Lifetime Achievement Award to SG Managing Partner David Schrader!

And, while he will effectively no longer be a part of the SG team in the new year, he has agreed to assist with transition matters for the projects for which he has remaining responsibilities.
This communication is meant to provide clients of SCHRADERGROUP, professional colleagues with whom Bruce has worked, and others, that SG remains committed to you all. Managing Partner David Schrader, Principals Tom Forsberg and Harry Pettoni, and Associates Danielle Hoffer, Dan D’Amico, Devin Bradbury, and Regina Jean-Claude will continue to utilize the resources of SCHRADERGROUP to provide the same level of service for which all of you have known us for since the inception of the firm by David Schrader in April of 2004.

SCHRADERGROUP Attends North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association Spring Conference
SCHRADERGROUP (SG) attended and exhibited at the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association (NCSA) Spring Conference from April 23rd to the 25th in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The NCSA is a state-wide organization made up of the state’s 100 sheriffs. The association works to strengthen the professional law enforcement services provided to the people of North Carolina.
SG Principal Harry Pettoni operated the SG booth throughout the event. This conference hosted training sessions, special speakers, and exhibitions that dealt with issues in law enforcement and the community. Events like these help sheriffs across the state figure out how to better serve their communities and to share techniques and strategies with their local counterparts.
SG was pleased to be a Corporate Partner for this event. We are dedicated to regularly attending public safety and law enforcement events as they provide new information and processes for the design of safe and efficient public safety facilities.
