Join IVCA in honoring this year's IVCA Awardees on December 3rd at the 2018 IVCA Awards Dinner!

2018 Richard J. Daley Award will be awarded to Christopher B. Galvin
Chris Galvin is one of our region’s most accomplished investors and business executives and has an outstanding record of public and philanthropic leadership in our region and nationally.
2018 Fellows Award will be awarded to Walter C. Florence, Frontenac Company
Walter Florence has been a member of the IVCA Board of Directors since 2005 and has served as Vice Chairman and more recently as IVCA Chairman. His service to IVCA included membership on multiple committee. 
Probably most importantly, and his most lasting impact at IVCA will be his commitment to creating more gender and racial diversity in our industry.
Walter’s commitment to creating diversity in our industry is hard to overstate.  Walter established an event to help fund his family foundation: A Good Walk Spoiled Foundation, so that it could provide a grant to IVCA’s Scholar Program.
