Columbia, Maryland – The Restoration Industry Association (RIA) awarded its prestigious 2010 Golden Quill award to Patrick Moffett, REA, CHMM, of Environmental Management and Engineering in Huntington Beach, California, for his two-part series on removing wildfire-caused soot from buildings and contents.
Presented annually at the RIA Convention and Exhibition, the articles are reviewed by a panel of judges who present the award based on the degree of usefulness of the information to readers; the composition and clarity of the article; and the style or personality conveyed by the author. Only articles written by RIA members and submitted to Cleaning & Restoration (C&R) magazine during the previous year are eligible for award consideration.
“RIA is fortunate to have many extremely knowledgeable members who are willing to share their expertise with our readers,” said Editor-in-Chief Patricia Harman. “Eleven articles were eligible for consideration this year and the competition was extremely close, but that just serves to illustrate the quality of the articles submitted.”
Cleaning & Restoration magazine has won 17 awards for editorial and design excellence over the last six years.
The Restoration Industry Association has member firms worldwide. RIA provides industry leadership, supports science, and promotes best practices for cleaning and restoration. More information is available on the RIA website: www.restorationindustry.org.
