The new annual Golden Leaf Award award will honour a CIPH member (manufacturer/master distributor) who best supports the efforts of sales agencies. The Award was a request from the CIPH Manufacturers’ Agents Council and was approved by the CIPH Board of Directors in 2020.

The new award will be presented to a member that exclusively utilizes manufacturers’ agents and has:

  • worked to develop and maintain a positive working relationship with manufacturers’ agents
  • promotes the industry and has a positive influence
  • establishes and maintains an efficient information network
  • works closely with agents to ensure customer satisfaction
  • and supports and has been actively engaged in CIPH.
