Indoor airPLUS Leader Awards

Applications Due Date Extended Two Weeks!

- Now due June 24, 2020 -

Winners to be recognized at EEBA Summit

Indoor airPLUS Leader Award PlaqueThe Indoor airPLUS Leader Awards were created to recognize builder and rater partners who construct or verify Indoor airPLUS qualified homes and actively promote the Indoor airPLUS brand. Promoting the brand includes the use of Indoor airPLUS marks and other sales/marketing tools to educate homebuyers, trade professionals, and allied stakeholders about the importance of enhanced indoor air quality protections.

Recognition Opportunities:

The Indoor airPLUS Leader Awards will be publicly announced in August 2020 and will be presented during the EEBA High Performance Home Summit, September 29 - October 1.

Leader of the Year CrystalEPA will also be presenting two Indoor airPLUS Leader of the Year Awards to an outstanding builder partner and rater partner, selected from the pool of Leader Award winners. The builder winner may be selected from any of the builder categories. The builder and rater Leaders of the Year will be chosen for their Indoor airPLUS contributions over the previous year, based on the evidence and quality of their Leader Award application. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your great work at a nationally recognized conference for high performance building! These two Leader of the Year winners will be announced as part of the awards presentation during the EEBA Summit.
