IECRM Wins Big Awards from IEC National

Receiving an award from IEC National, the parent organization for more than 50 IEC chapters across the country, is a tremendous achievement, and we urge members and chapters to take advantage of this significant opportunity for visible and tangible recognition. This year, IECRM took home awards in six 2020 categories. We are so proud of our members, partners, apprentices and staff who all played a role in our ability to capture these wins.

Congratulations to our CEO and Executive Director, Marilyn Akers Stansbury, who was named 2020 Executive Director of the Year. “This was an unexpected honor,” she said. “This is not just about me.
