It’s a hat trick for ICBA, as we won our third North American Trade Association of the Year Reed Award in Charleston, South Carolina, last week.

It’s the third time ICBA has won Trade Association of the Year for our advocacy for the B.C. open shop construction industry, but the first time we won the largest category (51+ employees). In 2019 and 2021, ICBA was awarded the North American Trade Association of the Year Reed Award for groups with 50 employees or fewer.

Overall, this is ICBA’s 14th Reed Award since 2018:

  • 1 in 2024
  • 1 in 2023
  • 1 in 2021
  • 2 in 2020
  • 6 in 2019
  • 3 in 2018

With 14 wins since 2018, ICBA is not just the most successful Canadian advocacy group in that time, but one of the most successful in the world for our creativity and execution of advocacy ideas.

Named after Campaigns & Elections founder and campaign marketing pioneer Stanley Foster Reed, the Washington, DC-based Reed Awards embody excellence in political campaigning, campaign management, political consulting and political design, grassroots & advocacy. Reed Award winners represent the very best the political campaign industry has to offer.

“Getting designated as a Reed Award winner is extraordinarily difficult,” said Shane D’Aprile, Co-Publisher, Campaigns & Elections. “Thousands of entries compete, but very few make the cut. That’s how it should be in the most exacting award the campaign industry has. So when you encounter a Reed Award winner you know one thing for certain, they produce work that’s head and shoulders above the competition.”
