In August 2011, in order to honor our founder and the Caring and Sharing spirit underlying our organization, the ICES Board of Directors created the “Hank and Betty Jo Steinman Award” to give back to our members and assist some in taking advantage of our largest annual event. These annual gifts are awarded at convention and are based on 10% of the proceeds of the previous Convention and Show, in the amount of $1000 each, with a minimum of one annual award. Awards are open to all members in good standing on of April 1st of each year. These awards are to be used to offset expenses for the next year’s Convention and Show, including member rate registration fees, demonstration fees, Hand-On class fees, meals and housing costs and travel expenses. This is the first year that the awards have been given. The Board of Directors is proud of the 2011 Charlotte Convention and Show as their proceeds allowed ICES to present eleven awards. Congratulations to all this years’ recipients.
