By IIBEC Document Competition Chair Jeremy Bridwell, RRC, REWC, PE
The IIBEC Document Competition was established in 1989 to showcase members’ exceptional work. The recent addition of a new category and the refocusing of the competition on the betterment of our work product in IIBEC and industry-wide is intended to encourage greater participation and revitalize the competition. The four categories include Report, Large Project, Small Project, and Special Project.
The primary mission of IIBEC is to support its members and improve the overall quality of the industry. We achieve this mission through knowledge sharing and educational offerings. The goal of the IIBEC Document Competition is to solicit quality work products from our members for review by the committee and to share it with the membership, thereby improving the overall quality of the work product of IIBEC members. Without widespread participation by our most experienced and knowledgeable membership, this goal falls woefully short.
As the chair of the Document Competition Committee, please join me in taking a serious look at IIBEC’s Document Competition. It is hoped that a renewed focus on contribution to the overall improvement of our work products will inspire participation by our accomplished membership. I challenge you to join me and the Document Competition Committee in improving the work product of our industry by participating in the 2020 IIBEC Document Competition.
Whatever your background, all IIBEC Consultant, Consultant Affiliate, and Quality Assurance Observer members are invited to submit entries for the 2020 Document Competition.
If you are an Industry, Industry Affiliate, Associate, or Facility Manager member and were involved with a project that has documents worthy of an award, please encourage your IIBEC Consultant, Consultant Affiliate, and Quality Assurance Observer member colleague to submit their documents to the competition.
New this year is the ability to digitally submit your entry. For the 2020 competition, your submission will be uploaded without having to print your files at the start. Visit https://iibec.org/2020-document-competition-submission for the procedure.
Entries must be submitted on or before October 31, 2019, at 11:59 PM EST, to be considered. There is no fee to enter the competition. Complete an online entry form for each entry submitted.
The winners of the 2020 IIBEC Document Competition will receive a plaque and recognition during the annual Awards Luncheon at the IIBEC International Convention and Trade Show in Houston, TX; publicity of their winning documents in Interface (see the pages 47-59 in this month’s Interface for this year’s winners); and IIBEC Dollars that may be spent through the association. Prizes will be awarded in each of the four categories.
