RIA Announces 2012 Golden Quill Award Winner

Rockville, MD – The Restoration Industry Association (RIA) awarded its prestigious 2012 Golden Quill award to Dale Sailer of Relias Services Group for his two-part series on the challenges restorers and insurers face when working together to close the gap between their industries.

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. “Eight 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 19 awards for editorial and design excellence over the last eight years.
