“Good design is all about making other designers feel like idiots because the idea wasn’t theirs.” —Frank Chimero

In support of good ideas and good design, the 2018 Chairman Awards will be given to the year’s most exceptional projects involving MCA member companies. Awards are based on overall appearance, significance of metal in the project, innovative use of metal, and the role of metal in achieving project objectives. Winners will be announced at our Winter Meeting, January 14-16 in Key Largo.
