trailblazer nicknamed “Mr. Code

upon the association and the plumbing and mechanical industries.
Kneidinger Green Contractor Award, given for the first time last year, honors
the IAPMO member contractor who best fulfills or symbolizes a commitment to
environmental sustainability through his or her work in the plumbing and
mechanical industries. It has been renamed this year in honor of Joseph
, an IAPMO member and passionate Green advocate who passed
away last September. Kneidinger was a senior plumbing inspector for the City of
Portland, OR, who dedicated his professional and personal life to the
advancement of sustainable and renewable principles.
for each will be accepted until May 15, after which the Board will select
qualified recipients at its summer meeting. Kneidinger Award nominations should
be presented to the Board through the Committee for Awareness and Understanding
of a Sustainable Environment (C.A.U.S.E.), the Green Technical Committee or the
Board itself. The Kneidinger Award is given out every year, while the Kauffman
Award is given only when the Board deems a nominee truly worthy. Kauffman
