It is only given sporadically, to ensure that recipients meet the criteria and are truly deserving.
Our 2021 recipient has proven deserving, Clint has been involved with IADD for over 30 years and in that time has held many leadership positions. He is described as someone who is always willing to share information and has contributed his knowledge through technical articles, presentations and as an active member of the IADD TechTeam. He was instrumental in the development and creation of the IADD Odyssey Expo, a bi-annual trade show and innovative concept in technical training featuring a hands-on Techshop where training programs come alive in an actual working diemaking and diecutting facility inside the exhibit area.
