The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Keith Williams Award. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 29.

The Keith Williams Award was created to honor its namesake, an industry pioneer who volunteered his time and technical abilities to the IICRC for many years. The award credits individuals who have made significant technical contributions to the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry.  

“Each year we look forward to the submission process and reviewing new nominees who undoubtedly represent the future of the industry,” says Kevin Pearson, IICRC chairman.

The winner of the Keith Williams award will be announced at this year’s Annual Instructors Meeting (AIM) on Oct. 3 in Las Vegas. The winner will receive a special plaque and will be recognized in the IICRCToday e-newsletter.
