Although IWF 2020 was cancelled due to Covid-19, the Cabinet Makers Association plans to recognize the winners of the Wood Diamond Awards, CMA's annual awards contest. The virtual ceremony will be held on Thursday, August 27 at 7 p.m. EDT.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the association's awards program began as a means for members to be recognized by their peers. After the first awards were announced, the benefits were clear: the program gave the organization another opportunity to promote excellence in in the industry.

The Cabinet Makers Association was incorporated in 1998 by a group of custom cabinetmakers who thought small to mid-size shops needed to network and help each other grow profitably. Currently, CMA membership is made up primarily of 20 or fewer employee operations, with the vast majority of those being 1-5 person shops.

KCD Software and Federated Insurance are sponsors of the Wood Diamond Awards ceremony. See
