In the past WW conferences have been the venue for presentation of several awards including:
The WW Board made a decision to maintain certain awards as WW presentations and leave it to the divisions as to whether they wish to offer others. FCSI will no longer be offering the FCSI Award for Excellence in Design or Management Advisory Services.
The Consultant magazine awards and service award remain worldwide awards. Product of the Year has been based on initial selection of innovative products by the Educational Foundation which then becomes the series entries in the "Innovation Showcase” for consultant members to vote on at the conference.
THE TRENDSETTER AWARD ( WORLDWIDE OR DIVISIONAL AWARD):
