Trustees’ Distinguished Service Award

The Trustees’ Distinguished Service Award is symbolically a lifetime achievement award that a volunteer who is devoted to the industry can receive from the Board of Trustees of ICSC.

Volunteers support ICSC by serving on committees, as faculty, and much more, often without getting a lot of recognition. They are unsung heroes giving back to our industry in quiet but important ways.

The Board of Trustees recognizes the special contributions of distinguished leaders in our organization for a lifetime of service as volunteers with this award.
