Hall Of Fame


The Hall of Fame was established in 2009 to recognize outstanding and extraordinary achievements in our association and the ice cream industry. It is the highest and most prestigious award our Association presents, honoring individuals for their selfless efforts and dedication to our common cause.

Mission Statement

The IAICDV Hall of Fame inductees are not chosen by virtue of their personal success and achievements, rather they are chosen for significant contribution to this association and to the ice cream industry at large.
