LAS VEGAS—June 1, 2020—The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification is now accepting nominations for the 2020 IICRC Hall of Fame Awards. The inaugural Hall of Fame Awards will honor past or present IICRC members who have made a significant positive impact on the IICRC. The deadline for nominations is June 30.

“The Hall of Fame Awards honor up to five individuals a year in the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries that have made a lasting impact on the IICRC and its registrants,” said IICRC Chairman Kevin Pearson. “We want to recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond with years of service to the IICRC. Without them the Institute would not be what it is today.”

The inaugural IICRC Hall of Fame inductees will be announced at this year’s Annual Instructors Meeting (AIM) on Oct. 3 in Las Vegas and will receive free travel and accommodation to the event. All inductees will be honored with a special plaque to take home at the AIM awards dinner and a separate plaque that will be displayed in the IICRC Hall of Fame located within the IICRC Training Center lobby at the Global Resource Center in Las Vegas.

Nominations are open to all past and present IICRC Constituents who have at least 25 consecutive years in the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries. To be considered, the nominee must have verifiable proof of previous or current IICRC certification. Posthumous, product innovator and technique creator nominations are welcome.
