The City of Northglenn recognized local businesses for their achievements and contributions to the community at its 7th Annual Business Appreciation Breakfast on Friday, Oct. 19. IECRM was honored for its dedication to Northglenn with the city’s Game Changer “Community Spirit” award.
“To be recognized for what we love to do, each and every day, is such an honor,” says Marilyn Stansbury, IECRM CEO. “Our presence in Northglenn is by design. Our new building and campus, and the work we do to support independent electrical contractors and the renewable energy sector, are a labor of love. We believe it is a privilege to be part of the fabric of this community and our purpose is to continually give back.”
As she introduced the IECRM and the award, emcee and TV host Jacquie Palisi said, “We are very honored to recognize the next organization that has not only become an incredible corporate citizen and partner over the past two years, but has invested millions of dollars in our community, created 43 new jobs, and trains more than 1,500 students each year.”
She also mentioned IECRM’s award-winning Sparkling Ice Castle of the Future for the annual 9NEWS Parade of Lights that illuminates the hard work of the men and women in the electrical and renewable energy industry. In addition, she noted IECRM’s awards recognition — 13 of the top awards at the National Independent Electrical Contractors conference — in September.
