Floyd Franke Award For Contributions to the CICP
Floyd Franke advanced the mission of the CICP on several levels through his contributions as a Governor and later as the Chairperson of the CBOG. Floyd had a vision of what the CICP should encompass and brought it to fruition. He proposed practical solutions to real problems and implemented those solutions. He foresaw that high standards must be maintained and laid the foundation for the Code of Conduct to ensure this was the case. He also established the Ethics Committee, the Two-Hand Casting Instructor program, Governor Membership terms, and opened CBOG Committees and CICP activities to participation by MCIs. Floyd looked to people who got things done. Neither name recognition nor celebrity status played a role. He had a major role in making the CICP a respected and valued component of FFI worldwide that reflects on those individuals whose certifications it sanctioned. This award recognizes significant contributions to processes and organizational components of the CICP.
This award is to be given by the CBOG of the FFI CICP to honor an individual(s) who demonstrates these same traits and qualities while making significant contributions to advance the CICP.
