The Industry Advisory Council presented its annual awards this week to members of the federal government and vendor community who made the biggest contributions to the partnerships fostered by the council.

The ceremony, held Nov. 4 at IAC's 12th annual Executive Leadership Conference in Hershey, Pa., included the second Spirit of Leadership award honoring Janice Mendenhall, a former General Services Administration employee who spent many of her 32 years in government strengthening the relationship between government and industry. Mendenhall died July 23, 2001.
