The Joesph K. Seidner Award is named in honor of Seidner, the first recipient. This award acknowledges the outstanding commitment of plumbing industry volunteers who dedicate their time, knowledge and expertise in developing safer plumbing codes and standards.

At 92, Seidner continues to work and has no plans for retirement from a long career of improving Canadian plumbing codes and standards.
