In honor of the dedication, craftsmanship, and involvement with the Remodeler’s Counsel, the late Bill Bruenderman was awarded the Remodeler of the Year.

Bill’s son Dane accepted the award in honor of his father.
John W. Robinson Lifetime Achievement Award
Joe was honored for his leadership role in the association and in the community. His peers commented in a congratulatory video that there was nobody more deserving than Joe to receive this award. As an association member since 1978, his involvement with the orchestra, Extreme Home Makeover, and his efforts with the association make Joe a very credible recipient.
