The 2020 Summit Awards: The show must go on!

Each year IECRM recognizes excellence in the electrical construction and green building fields with its prestigious awards ceremony and banquet. The 2020 IECRM Summit Awards was destined for change! The planning for this celebration was well underway when we were all thrown a curve-ball with the COVID-19 pandemic and so it is highly likely that we will be pivoting to an online, fun-filled Summit Awards event Thursday, August 13th.

There’s plenty of time to enter your project or nominate a company or individual for an award! The nominations deadline has been extended to Tuesday, June 30, giving you additional time to craft the perfect submission!

Special timing this year — you can apply for an IECRM Summit Award and an IEC National Award at the same time. The award categories are aligned in order to save you time on your submission. Visit to learn about and apply for IEC National Awards.

Now more than ever, it is important to recognize excellence in our industry and celebrate the dedication and hard work of our essential employees. Whether we are able to come together as a large group of more than 200 at our new venue or if we will come together virtually, the show must go on!
