CFA Awards

CFA Legacy Award Recipients

The Robert D. Sawyer Award is named on behalf of Bob Sawyer, the first CFA executive director, and it is presented to a contractor member whose contributions to the industry merit recognition. Bob passed away in 2004 after a brief illness.

The award recognizes individuals who commit countless time and resources to serve the industry, as Bob Sawyer did for the CFA.

Bob's inspiration and leadership brought together a group of minds that are truly focused at improving the technology and practices in an industry that we love so much. He will not be forgotten.
