The Home Performance Coalition believes in celebrating the individuals who are making an impact on the home performance and weatherization industries — the innovators, the trail blazers, and the tireless leaders whose vision and dedication have strengthened the industry.
The following awards are presented annually at the HPC National Home Performance Conference to recognize excellence in the women and men who are inspiring their peers.
Linda Wigington Leadership Award
The Linda Wigington Leadership Award celebrates visionary leaders doing extraordinary work to strengthen the home performance and weatherization industry. This award showcases individual excellence in leadership as demonstrated by outstanding initiative, impact of work, and inspiration to others. Formerly known as the ACI Leadership Award, the Linda Wigington Leadership Award was re-named in 2014 to honor Linda Wigington, founder of the Affordable Comfort Conference.
The 2018 Linda Wigington Leadership Award was given to Cynthia Adams.
To nominate for the 2019 award:
- The nominee must be an individual who currently works in, has worked in, or has had a major impact on the home performance and weatherization industries, excluding HPC staff and current award committee members, is eligible for nomination. (The award committee does not base its selection solely on an individual's longevity in the industry, but rather on the individual's cumulative contributions and quality of results.)
- All nominations must include the name, professional title, and organization of the nominee, as well as a 250-word description of his or her achievements and the nominator's name and contact information to be considered.
