Past Award Winners


"Receiving the Andrew J. Drozda Academic Affairs Commendation in 2005 shortly after I entered the profession was a great boost to my career. It gave me confidence to take on more challenges and to serve my community and my profession - it was validation of my service. Since that award I have been fortunate to build relationships through CSI around the country which is incredibly valuable to my career growth and my ability to serve my clients. Working and now owning a small architecture firm in a rural community, we do not have the access to experts in the industry that major cities have for architects. CSI is that network for me and through CSI I know who to call to get the right answers for my projects." Charles B. Hendricks, CSI, CDT
