FIS is calling for members who demonstrate excellence, dedication and commitment to personal development in the finishes and interiors sector to enter the 2017 President’s Awards, which will be announced at the President’s Lunch at Plaisterers’ Hall, London, in February next year.

The four award categories are Outstanding Employee, Future Leader, Apprentice of the Year and a nomination for the Lifetime Achievement Award. Entries need to be submitted online by the closing date of Wednesday 30 November 2016.

Steve Coley, FIS President, said: “The awards are an opportunity for our sector to recognise real achievement and success. Developing skills is a vital component of the finishes and interiors sector and entering these awards is a clear statement that our people are a top priority.”

This year, FIS will also present the winners of the FIS Contractors Awards Plastering categories at the President’s Lunch. The four salvers were traditionally part of the Plaisterers’ Awards and this change will place more emphasis on the traditional craft elements involved.
