Fetner Award

In recognition of the unique challenges of our international members and networks such as dealing with distance from other networks and members, we endow the Fetner Award for Outstanding International Member or Network. This award, founded in honor of IWIRC founding Vice Chair, Martha Fetner, is given to an international (non-US) member or network who or which has made an exceptional contribution to IWIRC, either through efforts over the past year, or over a period of years. Our international members and networks work tirelessly and diligently to grow IWIRC beyond borders and this award embodies those who have given generously of their time to strengthen and expand IWIRC.
