The ECCA Conference Best Presentation Award is presented in honour of the late Tom Watkins from Emory in the USA.

The European Campus Card Association was deeply saddened with the passing of our colleague and friend Tom who died in December 2016. Tom was a great friend of our association, a gentleman of the highest integrity. An outstanding leader who provided unstinting dedication to serving his country for 41 years in the USAF Reserves and also serving the community at Emory University for over 34 years. For almost a decade, Tom attended and presented at our annual conference. A great servant of the campus card industry, his presence and contribution is sadly missed by his many colleagues throughout Europe. Tom lives with us in memory and will for evermore.

On behalf of our association, we dedicate our best presentation award in his honour.
