Chairman’s Award

About the Chairman’s Award

The Chairman’s Award is conferred annually upon volunteer IABC members whose efforts, which include positively enhancing the organization’s reputation and image, have gone above and beyond that of what volunteers may usually undertake. Selected by the international executive board (IEB) Chair, any current IABC member active for the previous five years may be nominated for the award.

The Chairman’s Award is presented annually at IABC’s World Conference.
