ICEC Distinguished International Fellow (DIF) Award

At the 17thInternational Cost Engineering Congress in 2002 the International Cost Engineering Council instituted the award of Distinguished International Fellow. The award is conferred at each biennial ICEC World Congress and Council Meeting.

The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to ICEC and to the association or institute of which they are a member for a period of years. The recipients must be nominated to receive the award by an ICEC member association or institute. They must:

  • Have held a significant volunteer position in both ICEC and a member association or institute;
  • Have had significant involvement over a period of several years in both ICEC and a member association or institute; and
  • Must have made a significant contribution to the development of the cost management profession.

The award is not a grant of Fellow membership in ICEC but rather is recognition given to individuals who have made major contributions to ICEC and to the profession. Recipients are granted the post nominals of “DIF”.

The deadline for the nominations for the 2018 DIF Award is 1 September 2018.
